One thing that we tend to forget about NBA players is that they are quite the charitable human beings and recently, Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki made a pretty big offer to a Hunter Syndrome/MPS charity.
We get the full details from IBellieve foundation of Dirk’s upcoming good dead regarding a sizable donation to research towards the cure of Hunter’s Syndrome:
NBA superstar Dirk Nowitzki has generously pledged to donate $20 for every 2 point field goal his team, the Dallas Mavericks, scores November 6 – December 6, 2013, to support MPS II research. Dirk’s support lines up with the Two for MPS II campaign and will go a long way in helping us reach our campaign goal of $10,000.
As a long time friend and supporter of iBellieve Foundation founder, Simon Ibell, Dirk has seen firsthand the developments of MPS II research over the years, including the incredible difference enzyme replacement infusions have made in Simon’s life.
Every Two for MPS II campaign donation will go directly towards funding MPS II research to find a cure. Given recent positive developments, a cure is probable within the next decade.
