Aggie football fans are donating $41.38 to Coach Jimbo Fisher’s non-profit Kidz1stFund

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) – UPDATE to our original story: On Wednesday night, during Coach Fisher’s radio show, someone made a $41,380 donation to the cause.

The Texas A&M football team beat Alabama 41 to 38 last weekend and since that unforgettable game, Aggies have been donating $41.38 to Kidz1stFund.

Kidz1stFund was created by Jimbo and Candi Fisher to fund the fight against Fanconi Anemia – a rare blood disorder that affects their son Ethan and thousand of other children each year.

On Wednesday the organization’s Executive Director joined Rusty Surette on First News at Four to talk about their mission and the fundraiser that began online.

“We made an afternoon announcement that we were at $54,000 and 20 minutes later we were at $56,000. That’s all from the $41 donations and I promise I didn’t make this up but we’re at roughly 12 hundred donors now,” said Kirstin Rayborn.
