Justin’s brother, Tyler, plays volleyball at Robert Morris University in Chicago and his team is playing Moody Bible Institute on 3.30.11 (Wednesday). Erik Ness (a former youth group kid and dear family friend) is on the Moody team. Robert Morris has sponsored an event, Dig Purple, in our honor. We would love for you to come support their efforts and see some former ZB volleyball players.
Come out and support YOUR EAGLES vs Moody Bible on March 30, 2011 at Loyola University Gentile Center at 7 p.m.!! Not only are you supporting your EAGLES, you are supporting The Boyce Family!!! FREE TSHIRTS AND TREATS!! Bring your family, friends, and everyone you know and make sure to WEAR PURPLE!!
Dig Purple is an initiative to benefit Build with the Boyces – a group developed to help Stefanie and Justin Boyce build a home that… accomodates the needs of their children Jayden and Brooklyn, who both have MPS III A Sanfillipo Syndrome (the most severe form of Sanfillipo syndrome).
Sanfillipo syndrome is an inherited metabolic disease where the child is missing an enzyme responsible for breaking down a sugar. As they age, the sugar builds, causing progressive neurological damage. There is no treatment or cure, drastically reducing their live span. There are many hopeful treaments on the horizion, given the funding to do the research. Both Jayden and Brooklyn face a difficult road ahead. If you would like to learn more about Sanfilippo or Build with the Boyces visit:
If you would like to donate to the DIG PURPLE/BUILD WITH THE BOYCES:
Donations per dig- You can donate an amount of money per dig (ex:$.10) and during our Dig Purple game, we will count each dig (ex: 40 digs). Then, your donation is your pledge amount times the # digs (ex .10 x 40= $4).
You can also make a straight donation to Build with the Boyces. Please make all checks out to Build with the Boyces.
DONATIONS WILL BE COLLECTED THROUGH APRIL 29, 2011.
All men’s volleyball players will have pledge donation sheets until APRIL 29, 2011. If you would like to make a DIG PURPLE/BUILD WITH THE BOYCES donation please contact one of the players or any of the women’s volleyball players and we will get you set up to donate for a GREAT CAUSE and GREAT FAMILY!!
If you CANNOT ATTEND but still want to make a donation, let one of the men’s or women’s players know or leave a message on the wall and we’ll message you back from there. Even if you cannot come out and support for whatever reason, a donation of any kind would mean the world to the EAGLES and THE BOYCE FAMILY!!
