A big thank you to the 4th Grade Students at Kloefkorn Elementary in Lincoln, Nebraska for hosting “Hat Day” in honor of their friend and fellow student, Sam Butalla. These 4th Graders implemented a spirit day project that allowed the Kloefkorn School Community to wear a hat to school by donating $1 to GFPD. In addition to increasing awareness by giving daily announcements about Peroxisome Biogenesis Disorders, they raised $601+ for GFPD!
After learning about Peroxisome Biogenesis Disorders, these students are anxious to meet other children and families affected by PBD at the 2013 GFPD Family & Scientific Conference in Lincoln this summer! Students are invited show their support by participating in a balloon release on Monday, July 29th at 5 p.m. in Centennial Mall (specific location TBA due to the ongoing renovation project) in Downtown Lincoln.
