Running4Trisomy (Outdoor Giveaway)

$2,435 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 54 people in 26 months
Running4Trisomy was started by a fun idea that grew into something big. In 2013, Larry Wheat wanted to continue carrying  on the memory of his daughter Abigail, who passed in 2002 due to Trisomy 18. He had already started a non-profit called A Butterfly's Touch, but he wanted something more in the Trisomy community. He wanted to start raising more awareness about Trisomy and how it is not always a textbook case.  He wanted to run with a special friend that would make an impact on the world...so he started running 1/2 marathons with Krissy Krotzer in 2013. Krissy joins Larry on these runs and show the world she is not a textbook case. She is almost 15 with Trisomy 18. Krissy's parents were told she would not live to see her first birthday.  Since 2000, Krissy has shown the medical community that she is here to teach them about her journey. This past summer, we purchased an amazing push chair for Krissy - funded mainly by donations. Running4Trisomy's goal is to provide Trisomy children with running strollers that will  get them outside like other children.  Our goal is to provide 2 Trisomy families a new stroller in July 2015.  These stroller will be made by Freedom or something similar depending on size and age.

This is a wonderful update from Payton's mother Kristen. Thank you for your support, this has truly touched a specail family.....
We absolutely love the playpak!!! We have been taking it with us everywhere! We take her to our office and in instead of being held (which is difficult to work that way) or laying in her pack n play she is getting to sit up and interact with her toys in a completely different way! We are going to take it on some play groups with us too! I didn't realize how much we needed this until we got it!!! Thank you again!!!
