Eight-year-old Peyton has Bixler Syndrome, so her body does not sweat and she overheats easily. Her neurosurgeon said she is not allowed outside because of the heat; but, with the help of her new cooling vest, she has more freedom to play outdoors with the other kids.
“Thank you My Gym Challenge for allowing Peyton to be able to participate in Special Olympics soccer and cheerleading! We weren’t sure if she was going to be able to play with her friends, but she was able to because the vest allowed her to be outside and maintain body temperature. Thank you again!!!”
