Gunner Thames Memorial Foundation Inc

The Gunner Thames Memorial Foundation

  The mission of our foundation is to raise funds to purchase area youth 4H and FFA projects, raise funds for scholarships to deserving youth rodeo athletes and to raise funds for a Crisis Fund to benefit area youth in need.

   The Gunner Thames Memorial Foundation was formed in 2011 after Gunner passed away after a tragic rodeo accident. Gunner was a loving, amazingly funny, caring young man. He was injured in a steer wrestling event and fought a 3 week battle with a head injury.  He passed from complications on September 9th, 2011, he was 15 yrs old.

    Our mission is centered a round the things Gunner loved (working with livestock of any kind, showing animals in the 4H, spending time with young kids, hunting and fishing and rodeo.) 

    After the passing of Gunner, friends and family came together to establish the foundation in honor of Gunner and keeping his memory alive.
