Upcoming Fundraising and Awareness Events
Dear NNPDF Families and Friends,
The entire Niemann-Pick Disease type C community has been offered an unparalleled opportunity to raise $100,000 towards NPC research, but it will only happen if YOU take action and encourage others to do the same. It's easy! Vote once a day online between now and March 15th to push the Trent and Julie Smith Family Foundation "BReaK Thru Fund" for NPC research to the finish line and the top prize of $100,000! (Three of the Smith family children have been diagnosed with Niemann-Pick Disease type C ~ Braden, Riley and Keaton ~ thus BReaK-Thru Fund.)
This on-line voting contest is sponsored by, The Infiniti Coaches Charity Challenge, in for ten (10) weeks, the nation’s top coaches will be counting on fans like you to vote for their favorite charity. Vote for your coach’s favorite charity. Help increase their chances by sharing with your friends. The coaches receiving the most votes gain a spot in the finals, with the winning coach receiving $100,000 toward his charity (each coach will get at least $1,000 for his favorite cause). So start voting now!
Matt Painter, Purdue University Coach and the Smith Family BReaK Thru Fund are working together with the NPC community to vote Matt Painter into the final round! With your help, NPC research WILL garner $100,000, but only if you vote daily! We CAN do this if everyone gets behind this project.
The first round of voting opened on January 5th, 2015 and continues through January 25th, 2015 when 24 Coaches out of the initial 48 will advance to round two of four total. Vote daily for Matt Painter to ensure he makes it to the final round!
Share this with your families, share this with your friends and encourage them to do the same.
Alone we are rare, but together we are strong!

~On hiatus till further notice~
We are excited to announce that
has proudly joined the ranks of Dillon’s Army!
Beginning on Monday, June 2nd, and continuing on THE FIRST MONDAY OF EACH MONTH until the end of the year, Foster’s Grille, located at 8925 Fingerboard Road in Turning Point Center, will donate 25% of all sales proceeds to the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation. Furthermore, Foster’s will match any amount raised through your patronage.
The NNPDF, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit, works to support and promote research to find treatments and a cure for Niemann-Pick Disease (NPD). As a rare orphan disease with fewer than 500 diagnosed cases in the US, funding on a national level is slim, and families are left with few options for their children. The families of the NNPDF in a true “grass-roots effort” have taken on the challenge head-on and work diligently to raise funds to assist with the support of this vital and potentially life-saving research.
Please plan on joining your friends and neighbors on Mondays at Foster’s Grille.
Never doubt how your small gesture can make a big difference to the Papier family and others with children living with this horrible disease. Every dollar raised brings new hope!
