March 6th is a pretty special day in the Verrill Family. Zoey turns 9 and Cynthia turns 16!
In the last few years Zoey and Camden have helped their cousin raise over $5,000 for her foundation. The foundation was created five years ago to help Cynthia and her family raise money to purchase a service dog capable of detecting Cynthia’s seizures. Since then Cynthia’s Challenge has raised over $180,000 for families in their community.
On March 16-17, 2018, Zoey, her sister Camden, and Cynthia will be joining others in a 24-hour ski-a-thon with all of the all of this year’s benefiting Jacques Villeneuve. Jacques is a 9-year-old boy who was born missing the main wiring between the left and right hemispheres of his brain, Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum. He has also been diagnosed with Diplegic Spastic Cerebral Palsy an intellectual disability which pose both physical and mental challenges. Jacques' parents have to physically lift him into their vehicle every time they plan on going anywhere and then have enough room for storage for his walking assistance devices. This year’s goal is to raise $65,000 to purchase Jacques’ family a wheelchair accessible van.
