Joey Christoff’s son, Mitchell, has Fragile X syndrome, and his wife and mother-in-law are carriers at risk of Fragile X-associated disorders.
Caring for them and giving hope to other families is what drives Joey to raise awareness and to fundraise for the National Fragile X Foundation, and he has been doing Anything for Fragile X.
Joey’s Anything was a fishing getaway at a home in Hilton Head, SC. 9 friends chipped in to be treated to six days of fishing, golf, tennis, swimming, zip lining, biking, the beach, and anything else on the island. Everyone was able to not only enjoy time away, but also donate to support community, awareness, and research for Fragile X families.
Turns out, supporting Fragile X families runs in Mitchell’s family. His Uncle David embraced his passion – running over fishing – to run a half marathon for Mitchell and to raise money for the NFXF.
Not everyone has a vacation home to offer or the stamina (or desire) to run a half marathon, but we all can do Anything for Fragile X. What is your Anything?
