Fundraiser for Kimmie
Kimmie Bussler is a five year old little girl from Trenton, Michigan who is affected by CDKL5. Her family held a fundraiser in her honor on Sunday, July 18, 2010 at Lions, Tigers, and Beers Sports Club in Wyandotte, MI. All proceeds from the event went to the International Foundation for CDKL5 Research. The event started at noon and was packed until 8pm. There were several raffle baskets filled with items donated by Kimmie’s family and friends. They also sold 50/50 tickets and raffle tickets for an iPad – a winner will be drawn at the 2nd Annual Walk A Thon for CDKL5 Research in Richmond, MI on Saturday, August 7th.
There was a wonderful article about Kimmie and CDKL5 in the local newspaper, The News Herald. The article and her picture were on the front page and came out the morning of the fundraiser which helped draw a great crowd of supporters and well-wishers. Kimmie and her family would like to thank everyone for their support and for bringing us one step closer to finding a cure!
