On Sunday, September 24th, 2017, the Richard Family will be holding their 9th Annual Joubert Syndrome Foundation/Isabella Richard Golf Scramble and Benefit. Proceeds raised from this event will be donated to the Joubert Syndrome Foundation (JSF) to help further research, as well as helping families purchase much needed medical equipment and supplies.
Isabella (Bella as she is more commonly known) is an energetic, happy, very friendly 14 yr. old. Even though she lives with physical limitations, she doesn’t let that prevent her from doing the things she enjoys. During the summer, she uses her power-chair to race the bases with her friends, in the Buddy Ball Challenger Baseball League. At home she uses her manual wheel chair to help set the table at dinner time and is always the first person to put her used dishes in the sink. She is learning to become more independent and responsible for her own belongings each day. Her infectious smile will warm your heart and her hugs will warm your soul.
Over the past few years, with proceeds raised from this event, the Richard family has been able to continue to give Bella an opportunity for more independence.
Modifications to our home are constant. Recently, we installed new hardwood floors throughout our house which enables Bella to use her manual wheel chair to travel from room to room without any obstacles!
We humbly ask that you please join us for a fun-filled afternoon of golf, dinner and companionship. Your support is always greatly appreciated!
The Richard Family
