Smith Family BReaK Thru Fund – Thank you!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
The 2014 Coaches’ Challenge has come to an end and even though we did not take home the top prize, we did accomplish the two goals that our fund has had from the day it was established:
1. Raise awareness about Niemann-Pick Type C Disease
2. Raise money to fund NPC Research
We can’t thank everyone enough for continuing to help in our fight against NPC. It is humbling to see the support from friends, old and new, as we battle NPC. We truly are aware that we never fight this battle alone
And while we can all be proud of the effort in the Coaches’ Challenge and the $15K raised for NPC Research, we cannot lose sight of the fact that we still are in need of the cure. In fact, during the 10 weeks of this challenge at least 3 families (including our own) said goodbye to loved ones that lost their battle with NPC and other families joined the fight as they received news of an NPC diagnosis.
So let’s celebrate the 2nd place finish in the Coaches’ Challenge and resolve to come back next year with even more fight and determination.
Again…Thank you all so much for your continued support and we hope to see you at our annual golf fundraiser on August 2 at the West Lafayette Golf and Country Club.
God bless you all,
Trent, Julie, Chandlar, Braden, Riley, and Keaton Smith
