2021 Family Zoo Days

As our highest attended social event, nearly 180 tickets were claimed for MDFF’s Zoo Days 2021!

August, 2021

Thanks to an anonymous donor and the generosity of the Indianapolis Zoo, MDFF provided free admittance to the Indianapolis Zoo for our families. Guests checked in at the MDFF table upon arrival, received their tickets and experienced the zoo at their own pace. Attendees said it was a fun activity for the whole family and it was extra special to experience the zoo alongside other MDFF families!

An Extra Special Day At The Zoo for Stuart and His Family

When we announced the opening of our Zoo Days in 2021, Stuart reached out to us. He explained that he, his daughter, and his young grandson were all diagnosed with Charcot Marie Tooth. He shared that he wanted so much to attend with his family but that he had no transportation for his power chair and no way of getting there. We knew we couldn't let transportation stand in this family's way. So, we partnered with ZTrip to pick up Stuart and his family at their home and transport them to and from the event.

"Blessed and Thankful to enjoy an outing with my kids for the first time in several years. I want to thank the MDFF for the transportation you graciously provided. It was wonderful to be in a vehicle again and words can't describe what it meant to me to be able to enjoy time and be out with my kids." -Stuart Horton
