Welcome to Team Zoey's web site, and thanks for visiting!
3rd Annual Turkey Trot
Thank You Just Never Seems Like Enough!
Dear Team Zoey Supporters:
November 30th was our 3rd Annual Team Zoey “Miles of Hope” 5k run 1m fun/run Turkey Trot. I am humbled and proud to announce that Team Zoey had over 600 walkers and runners in attendance and we raised over $30,000 this past Saturday in Verona Park thanks to all of your support.
In true Team Zoey fashion this years Turkey Trot exceeded our expectations. To all our regular supporters, we thank you from the bottom of hearts and to all of you who are 1st time Team Zoey supporters, we thank you and welcome you to our Team.
We would like to thank all the sponsors, volunteers and the committee who work tirelessly for 6 months to take care of every detail. A special Thank you to Al Siuta who without his timing expertise we would not have a race.
The money Team Zoey raises goes to The Progeria Research Foundation to find treatments and a cure for Progeria. None of it would be possible if it was not for the incredible hearts of the people who keep showing up to help support Team Zoey.
Thanks to all of you, we are already dreaming about next years Turkey Trot!

Your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $500,000, from now through October 23rd so we can fund the triple trial and give every child with Progeria access to possibly life-saving drugs.

Who is Zoey, you may ask? And what exactly is her "Team"? Well, first of all, Zoey is Zoey Aster Penny, a beautiful, sweet little girl, born September 20th, 2009, with Progeria. This is a fatal disease that prematurely ages kids many times faster than normal. And Team Zoey includes every one who helps in the Fight Against Progeria. This could mean you.
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 with you our Zoey as she lives her life fighting progeria.
On other pages we will hope to educate you about this insidious disease, and the great work that the Progeria Research Foundation (PRF) is doing.
We will update you as to the time and place of the numerous fundraisers being conducted and tell you where and how you can donate money to the PRF.
So, on behalf of Zoey, her family, and all the other kids fighting the fight.
John and Marlene Marozzi
(Zoey's Grand Parents)
