This mother of two needs your support in this epic journey in receiving urgent medical treatment.  Krista Guloien Temple is a friend, a sister, a mother, a wife, a daughter.



Join us as we raise $250,000—your donation counts.


On March 9th, 2024, as Krista went to open a jar of pickles, she broke her arm. This seemingly routine act would later confirm that her breast cancer from 2022 had returned, now in her bones. Upon further private testing Krista was diagnosed with stage four cancer, which included six lesions from her head to her waist.


Krista will undergo an advanced treatment of Intratumoral Immunotherapy, for which we believe she is an ideal candidate.  The cost of these private treatments surpass hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The Run

Vancouver to Whistler, B.C.


The Sea to Sky Highway is the scenic and world-renowned 125km highway from Vancouver to Whistler, B.C. 

Matt will be completing this 125km overnight run. 

 

It will be a gruelling and intense journey, covering 1900 meters of elevation. 

 

Matt’s deep care for Krista, and his relentless discipline and commitment to health over the years, is the driving force behind this initiative.

Matt will be running through the night, facing both physical and mental demands, to cross the finish line nearly 20 hours later.
