Pound the Pavement for Peter – Atlanta, GA
The Global Foundation for Peroxisomal Disorders was very grateful to be the 2012 recipient of funds from Pound the Pavement for Peter and appreciative of the efforts by Peter’s Pals, the Atlanta/ Brookhaven community, and the family and friends of Peter Amann Hopkins. In its third year, Pound the Pavement for Peter was a huge success with over 500 registered race participants, forty Corporate Sponsors, and forty-two Family Sponsors. The 2012 Pound the Pavement for Peter Honoree was Jackson Jinright, a five-year-old Atlanta resident with a Peroxisome Biogenesis Disorder- Zellweger Spectrum Disorder. Funds from the race will be used to enhance the lives of children with Peroxisome Biogenesis Disorder-Zellweger Spectrum Disorder (PBD-ZSD) and their families, as well as support the researchers passionate about finding treatments for this rare spectrum of disorders.
