THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family, Thank you for visiting the Grimmel Family donation page. Your support means more than you can ever know! Our 7th Annual Families for Fragile X 5K Run/ Walk is coming up on December 5th. This year we are calling it Monkey Madness 5K, as we will be running/walking through the Zoo. We need your help to make this event a success! Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) is a neurological disorder that causes SEVERE cognitive delays, speech delays, and sensory dysfunction. 33% of children diagnosed with FXS are also diagnosed with Autism. Our children, Margaux and Garrick were both diagnosed with FXS at a very young age. Today they are 16 and 13 years old! It's incredible how quickly time flies. It has been quite a difficult road, but they are constantly improving, and we couldn't ask for more beautiful and happy children. That said, there are struggles each and every day, for both Margaux and Garrick and for us as a family. However, this is a time of change and progress, and we have hope that through the amazing research that is currently being conducted, we will soon have much more effective drug treatments available to significantly improve the lives of our loved ones who are struggling with this difficult disorder. That's why FAMILIES FOR FRAGILE X is so important. We created this foundation to help support parents, provide education about FXS, give grants to families to attend the local Fragile X Clinic for evaluations, and raise money for research to find a cure! By making a tax-deductible donation, you can truly make a difference in the lives of those affected with Fragile X. Any amount you feel comfortable giving is deeply appreciated. After all, every dollar counts. We hope you can participate or at least support this event; please click above on "Register for this event". It is going to be so much fun...a 5k Run/ Family Walk through the ZOO, bounce houses, food, music, great friends, and lots more! We hope to see you there. With your support, we can make a positive impact today in the lives of those living with Fragile X Syndrome! A heartfelt thanks, Kimberly and Mark.
