Support my friend Amy in her fight!
As you may or may not know, I played soccer at Boise State University. During my experience, I met a lot of my closest, dearest friends and we created a bond that it seems only we understand sometimes. Amy and I have known eachother for a long time. In fact, we went to the same high school. It wasn’t until playing with her at Boise State and living next door to one another (oh bless Denver Street) that we got closer to one another. As colligiate soccer ended for Amy, and I continued to play (I am 3 years younger) we still remained in touch via friends and fellow team mates. Once we were both done playing, we became even closer friends. I am so thankful for the relationships soccer has brought me, and I am thankful for Amy. The below fundraiser is an indication of how close our ties with soccer and one another are and always will be. I will be at the event all day, please stop by and show your support if you can, or please think of donating to Amy’s ICCU account if you have the ability. If you can’t do either of those things, please simply keep her in your thoughts. Thank you and thank you Boise State…
Dunn was diagnosed with stage IV melanoma, July 27. It is her second bout with cancer, as she was originally diagnosed with melanoma, and beat it a few short years ago. Her relapse is serious enough that she cannot receive treatment at home in Boise. Instead, she will be cared for at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Dunn was a four-year letterwinner, playing defense for the Broncos from 2000-03. Her impact was felt throughout her four-year career as she currently sits eighth on the Boise State career list for games played with 73.
Fans will have the opportunity to bid in a silent auction during the game, as well as stay after the final whistle for an autograph session with each team. Donation stations will be set up at the gate upon entry with all proceeds going directly to the Dunn family in an effort to help with medical expenses.
“Even if everyone who attends the game donated the five or six dollars it costs for a regular season game, it could go a long way in helping Amy,” said head coach Steve Lucas.
For those who would like to donate but are unable to attend the exhibition fundraiser, you can go into any Idaho Central Credit Union branch and make a donation. Checks may also be made out to Amy Dunn, or to ICCU with a note in the memo field about a donation for Amy Dunn, and mailed to PO Box 2469, Pocatello, ID 83206.
”We are raising money to help a Bronco,” Lucas said. “We want everyone out here who can come. It’s a good event to get behind in order to give her all the tools she needs to fight, so that fighting is all she needs to worry about.”
