A few more of our Miracle Makers
Are you interested in fundraising for PRF or helping spread awareness about Progeria?
A Miracle Maker is a volunteer who raises awareness and money for PRF by running a fundraiser of their own, or does something else special to help PRF carry out its mission.
Bake sales, car washes, cornhole tournaments, Bar/Bat Mitzvah projects, Sweet 16 parties, concerts – choose your favorite activities to raise funds to support PRF’s work. Be creative, have fun, and invite your friends, family and coworkers to join in. Please join our group of heroes. Working together in a variety of ways, we WILL find a cure.
Some of Our Amazing Miracle Makers
Ella and Sarina from Washington, D.C.
These high schoolers began their journey with PRF as middle school students at Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C., running bake sales and attending the opening night of PRF’s 2010 Scientific Workshop. Since that time, Ella and Sarina have grown to be passionate supporters of PRF, holding a school Community Night, speaking about their involvement as student leaders of PRF’s curriculum at a national conference, and creating our 2017 ONEpossible Campaign video. Such talented and dedicated young ladies – we are so grateful to have them on our team!
Classic Auto Restoration Specialists from N. Fort Meyers, Florida
Since 2008, Classic Auto Restoration Specialists (CARS.), has hosted ‘Cruise-In for Progeria’ open houses at the CARS shop, where people eat delicious BBQ, tour the museum, and see a wide array of classic cars – all for a small donation to PRF. Thank you, car lovers, for driving up donations to PRF!
Charlotte from Australia
Charlotte is a determined 6 year-old with a huge heart. Charlotte started up her own fundraising project, selling hand-made bracelets. Her project went viral and she raised over $400 for Team Enzo – now that’s what friendship is all about!
Olivia from New York
Olivia started supporting PRF last year, when she asked her family to donate. This year she involved her school, giving a presentation about Progeria to her fellow 6th graders and placing handmade donation jars (pictured here) in the teacher’s lounge. This is what the jars say:
“Change means growth…
Change means new experiences…
Change can make all things new…
Will you share YOUR loose change to help us find a cure for Progeria?
You could CHANGE a young person’s LIFE.”
Wow – such a powerful message from a special young lady!
Lili from Australia
Since she learned about Progeria in 2014, “Tia Lili” has become a very important part of Team Enzo in Australia. Most recently, she created a Chocolate Box stuffed full of candy she sells to her co-workers, with all funds donated to Enzo’s ONEpossible team. Thanks to Lili and all her special customers – keep on snacking!
Chloe from Pennsylvania
Birthdays are special, especially for kids who look forward to the presents. But for Chloe’s 9th birthday, it was an opportunity for her to do something for her friend, Bennett. Instead of gifts, Chloe asked people to make donations to PRF’s PA – West Chapter. Thank you Chloe and friends for raising $250 for The Progeria Research Foundation!
