In early 2020, big plans were being made in Hanover, Pennsylvania for a fundraising event in honor of Hayden Dell. Hayden is a high school student and regular client at Hanover Family Fitness where he participates regularly in the “Special Warriors Program”. Hayden and his family are also close friends with the business owner, Sheron Smith. Sheron developed a fundraiser to honor Hayden and to share his story and promote awareness of WAGR syndrome in their community. Plans included a t-shirt sale, raffle, and a “special $10 workout”. Sheron also secured numerous corporate donors who started the fundraiser off with a bang, donating a total of $1,800. Due to COVID-19, the remainder event has been postponed and will hopefully restart when it’s safe to do so.
