The following is a letter from Rosie Gomez, Event Coordinator for the Run for Hope.
The Brown Derby Nite Club cordially invites you to join us for, “A Run for Hope”, 4th Annual Benefit Bike Run, on October 18, 2014, in Grant County New Mexico. Our mission is to give hope to children and their family’s, who are in need of additional assistance to receive services and treatment from the UNMH Children’s Hospital Pediatric Nephrology Clinic in Albuquerque, NM. My daughter was born with kidney disease and she went into kidney failure twice within the first 6 months of her life. The Pediatric Nephrology Clinic at UNMH Children’s Hospital saved her life; she is a survivor and now functions at 100% with only one kidney. Without the Pediatric Nephrology Clinic, its dedicated doctors and their state of the art services, I could not say we might have had the same outcome. Because of her, she has inspired us to help others. So in 2010 we started hosting benefit bike runs for children who were most in need and went on to establish our “Run for Hope”. Despite today’s tough economic conditions, we have made it possible for 5 families to receive relief of some financial burden for; out of town services, treatment and saddly, funeral costs. In order to meet those needs, we need help from people like you. I am writing to invite your business to Sponsor our “benefit bike run” in the means of advertising to bring awareness to support our mission and benefit “A Run for Hope”. The children of today are, our hope and future of tomorrow. Thank you for your time and thoughtful consideration. I look forward to hearing from you!
