This is Mer, our Chief Motivating Officer, the reason the MTeam exists and the one whose smiles inspired our motto #milesforsmiles . She was born with a rare genetic condition called #Foxg1 , (only about 350 people worldwide have been diagnosed). We run and ride for Mer and others with intellectual and developmental disabilities that @bestbuddies supports. ⭐️ An explanation of this pic from her parents Greg & Laura - “She sleeps in the exact same position every night: hands by her neck, elbows splayed wide to the side like chicken wings. We call these her ‘Do Not Disturb’ arms; it means ‘see you guys later, I’m going to bed’!” ⭐️ Click the link in our bio if you’d like to join the MTeam or chip in a small donation toward our goal to raise $250k by June 2019.
