Annual Campaign 2009
Our goal of a cure starts with one -YOU.
WE DID IT! From February 1 – March 31st, 40 team leaders got over 800 people to donate anywhere from $10 to $5,000 – amazing! THANK YOU to all those who supported this tremendous effort.
In May 2007, PRF began funding a first-ever Progeria clinical trial
with a drug that shows great promise to effectively
treat children with Progeria. For the first time, there is a possible treatment - and just nine years ago there was nothing being done medically for these children!
With just 6 months left until this clinical trial is completed, our goal was to raise $100,000 to help fund the trial. Thanks to the success of this campaign, we are nearly at the $2 million needed.
We know the economy is uncertain at this time, so it is especially heartwarming that so many donated. It all made a difference - $25, $30, $50 or more – every ONE of you and your donations got us to goal.
Thank you to our campaign chair Kim Paratore, and to all the teams who worked so hard to make this event a success:
