Family, friends and other supporters of Kristian McGuinness and Progeria research honored this wonderful boy’s memory with a 2-mile walk that raised over $8,000 – despite a rainy forecast. In a true testament to Kristian’s spirit, the rain stopped as the walk began, and everyone lifted their heads to the sky as bright blue balloons were released.
Kristian, who had Progeria, passed away in March 2006. A special thank you to his parents, Tom and Kathy, for devoting their time and energy to this event.
