Today, Townsquare Media - Cheyenne presents the Maverick Strong Marathon.

Maverick Schutte is a 7-year-old boy from Cheyenne who was born with a heart defect. In his short life, he's had over 30 surgeries. As a spokesperson for the Children's Miracle Network, he has helped raise millions for other kids. Now, he needs our help.

Maverick's health has recently taken a turn for the worse and the doctors believe he may need a heart and lung transplant. The family is planning to consult with specialists at Boston Children's Hospital later this month. The goal of our "Maverick Strong Marathon" is to raise money for that trip and his continuing care.

If you'd like to help support one of Cheyenne's hometown heroes, you can contribute to the Maverick Schutte fund at the Meridian Trust Federal Credit Union, or click this link to donate online.

And join us tomorrow from 9 a.m to 2 p.m as we raise more money for Maverick a community-wide garage sale at the First Baptist Church on 1800 E. Pershing Blvd.
