Fundraisers Planned for Wichita Cop Battling Cancer

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) – A local nonprofit is supporting a Wichita police officer after he was diagnosed with cancer.

Officer Daniel Gumm, an 18-year veteran and K-9 handler, was diagnosed with metastatic esophageal cancer which has now spread to his liver.

In 2017, he lost his K-9 partner “Rooster” while trying to arrest a suspect. Now, the Honoré Adversis Foundation is now organizing a series of fundraisers to benefit Officer Gumm and his family. They understand:

A fundraiser for #294STRONG t-shirts: Fundraising began on July 20, 2022. His eldest daughter created the t-shirt. To buy a t-shirt, visit www.cuffsvsaxes.com and click “#294STRONG”.

A #294STRONG advantage: The benefit will include burgers and hot dog food, a silent auction and a live auction on Saturday August 20, 2022 at the Catholic Church of the Holy Spirit located at 18218 W. US-54 Goddard, KS 67052. The advantage will be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A #294STRONG 5K Run & 1 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk: The run/walk races will take place on Saturday, September 3, 2022, with a location TBD (TBD). More details to come on this 5k and 1 mile family run/walk may include pancakes, coffee, Touch A Truck and the chance to meet local K-9 heroes.
