Gerald is a yellow, inflatable, waving, tube-man used for promotional purposes. He has an indoor, noise-reducing air blower and will be traveling from office to office on the University of Idaho campus to raise money for Chase, a 10-year old boy with a brain tumor near his optic nerve.
Gerald will be invading Dean Pitman's office first on April 7th
and can't wait to travel around campus to send Chase and his family to Walt Disney World! Gerald is excited to see how far he can reach, and can't wait to see the inter-office and campus interaction he creates. The event will go through April 18th.
Help us raise money to send Chase to Walt Disney World!
Chase is a 10 year-old boy from Moscow, Idaho. Chase is adopted with 6 siblings and is a huge San Diego Chargers fan. Unfortunately Chase has a brain tumor near his optic nerve. Due to the location of Chase's tumor he is blind in one eye and quickly losing vision in the other. Chase's wish is to travel with his family to Walt Disney World and meet his favorite Disney characters.
