“Fundraiser for Baby Bennett”
This Saturdays WODs will be performed in support of Coach Jon and his wife, Andrea’s son, Bennett.
Bennett was born with Sprengel’s Deformity – a rare congenital skeletal abnormality where one shoulder blade sits higher on the back than the other. The deformity is due to a failure in early fetal development where the shoulder fails to descend properly from the neck to its final position. This deformity caused him to only sleep in one position as an infant. Because of this, he developed Plagiocephaly – flattening of the skull on one side. Unfortunately, Jon and Andrea’s medical insurance company views cranial bands or ‘helmets’ as cosmetic and not medically necessary. They do not take into account that any future bike helmets, football helmets, baseball batting helmets, etc. will fit incorrectly because of his head shape and therefore be unsafe – quite the opposite of their purpose.
Because of both Andrea and Bennett’s medical history, a hard delivery and complications with Andrea’s health, the Daulbaugh’s have multiple medical bills which makes it difficult to afford this helmet out of pocket. They are also limited in the timeframe in which the helmet will be effective. The skull fuses and hardens between 1.5 – 2 years old. With Bennett being 10 months old and the typical length of treatment being 6 months, he needs to receive his helmet as soon as possible.
Please join us in raising funds for our “family” and making sure little Bennett has what he needs. We will be offering a special “Bennett” WOD with chances to win great prizes!
