Spinning Wheels Productions holding Sanfilippo Smash III


Spinning Wheels Productions is holding the Sanfilippo Smash III, a demolition derby, to aid in the quality of life and research for those affected by Sanfilippo syndrome. This disease is terminal and rare.

According to sanfilippo.org, Sanfilippo, or MPSIII, is a metabolic disorder. 1 in 70,000 children is born with the inherited condition which is caused by an enzyme deficiency. The lack of enzyme prevents the body from going through its natural recycling process, causing cellular malfunction.

The first year the event was held it was able to raise $10,000. The second year $25,000 was raised and organizers hope to raise $50,000 this year.

Sanfilippo Smash 3 will be on Saturday, October 6 at the Otsego County Fair, 469 Mill Street in Morris. Inspection of vehicles start at 7 a.m. and the event begins at 12 p.m. More information can be found here.
