Well, an eTrike, actually.
This is Zoey Penny, one of our favorite kids.
Zoey was born with Progeria, a rare, fatal, “rapid aging” disease. We fell in love with Zoey, all of her friends and family immediately. You will too.
Zoey is eight years old now and her mom told us that she loves to hang out with her friends to dance, play, study, enjoy gymnastics and ride bicycles. Except that Zoey can only watch as her friends ride their bikes in the spring, summer and fall.
We thought of something better.
We wanted Zoey to be able to join her friends for a bike ride, so we did two things:
- We deigned and built an eTrike (sometimes referred to as a recumbent bicycle) especially for her. A real-deal eTrike, just like the ones ridden for fun and sport, that can keep up with just about any bike or trike on the road. Maybe even beat them.
- We have donated a beautiful eBike to Team Zoey, to be offered in a silent raffle event, coming up soon, on March 29, 2018, in East Hanover New Jersey.
Be sure to check this beautiful bike out here. You will want to win it.
The Team Zoey web site is dedicated to raising money for the Progeria Research Foundation to find a cure and develop treatments for all the kids suffering from this disease; and to share Zoey as she lives her life fighting progeria.
Please consider joining us on March 19th in East Hanover to support Zoey and all of the children who need your help. The proceeds go to the Progeria Research Foundation.
Thank you Zoey, for giving us a way to be better, kinder and- in a sorely confused, divided world, an opportunity to come together to be the best we can be.
Before you go- please meet Sam, who will show you how beautiful life can be, no matter what. His words may change your life.
