Hundreds Pound the Pavement for Team Zoey
First annual 'Turkey Trot' held at Verona Park.
On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, hundreds participated in the first annual Turkey Trot Miles for Miracles 5k at Verona Park. The fundraiser was held for Zoey Aster Penny, who was diagnosed with Progeria at birth. This degenerative disease prematurely ages young children, leaving them with a life expectancy of about 13 years of age. All proceeds raised at the run will go towards the Progeria Research Foundation by way of Team Zoey, a foundation created in honor of Zoey, who recently celebrated her second birthday.
