To all our members:
During our last meeting we discussed the addition of a link to Middle Tennessee charities on our ASIS Chapter 52 website, and this is the first submission. As with anything else please investigate the circumstances surrounding any charity. ASIS does not endorse any postings or submissions/applications for donations. In this particular case one of our colleagues, Chris Locke from Metro PD, 615-566-6973, requested assistance from chapter members and he will be happy to talk to you in order for you to form your own opinion and hopefully assist Gabe.
Gabe is a 5th grader at Mt Juliet Elementary School.
In Kindergarten, Gabe was found to have a very rare form of skin cancer that only old men get. He’s on his 11th round of infusions and has had numerous radiation treatments and surgeries over the years. He’s on steroids too and all this messes with his stomach / intestines causing him nausea, pain, and other things. And he still goes to school when he’s able too! What a trooper!
Help Team Gabe by purchasing a Team Gabe T-shirt for $10 for this upcoming race. Proceeds help Camp Horizon just as the 5k race listed below.
The Front of the T-shirt has “Team Gabe” / Back has “Friends don’t let friends fight cancer alone”
To order a t-shirt: Text or call Chris Locke with Metro PD, 615-566-6973 . Tell him how many you wish to order and what sizes / tell him your name so she can keep track of your order. They are in the pre-order stages for the shirts now.
Thank you for helping Gabe and Camp Horizon! Please keep Gabe and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
Help a kid with cancer go to Camp Horizon.
Camp Horizon is provided free of charge to kids facing the difficult challenges of cancer.
However, the cost to pay for the doctors and support staff is $500.00 per child.
By donating money it helps to get that extra child to be able to go to this camp.
