Zoey Penny of Verona was diagnosed with progeria as an infant eight years ago. The extremely genetic disease causes people to age rapidly. Team Zoey was organized to help raise money to find a cure for Progeria and has inspired many local fundraisers to help the Progeria Research Foundation to study the disease. In addition, Team Zoey holds bigger events each year, like the golf outing and a 5K race in Verona Park right after Thanksgiving.
