The Thompson and Hesko families, along with many others within the community, came together on October 26th at Gunstock Mountain Resort for an evening in honor of John Bradley. It was an amazing and memorable evening filled with spirit and hope. . . along with wish flags, auction bidding, dancing, tears, laughter, and moose! In total this event raised approximately $175,000.00!!! INCREDIBLE!
The community around us has responded to John’s diagnosis with unbridled support and selfless generosity. The words sincerely appreciative do not express the depth of our thankfulness. We remain positive, optimistic, and inspired—all thanks to you, the community around us. Your support is accepted with tremendous gratitude and please rest assured that the money raised from this event will be instrumental in helping John—and hundreds of other kids—fight and defeat DIPG. Together we can make a difference. THE CURE STARTS NOW!
