Annual motorcyle ride will aid Weare twins with rare disease
On Saturday, the third annual Tour for the Twins motorcycle ride will raise funds to support Hunter and Jack Mackay, who live in Weare with their parents Matt and Alison Mackay and suffer from Morquio Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes their bodies to not produce the right enzymes to break down material in the cells.
“I think they will both need surgery on their hips and legs going down the road,” said Anderson. “It is a sad situation, and a financial burden on the parents, as only Matt can work so Alison can stay at home with them and make sure they get to their doctor’s appointments and preschool.”
The third annual Tour for the Twins will begin on Saturday at Dunkin’ Donuts in South Weare with registration beginning at 9 a.m. There will be a pool party following the ride at 2:30 p.m., where refreshments will be served.
