    Nicholas Nunno Foundation



    Nicholas' Story
    Nicholas Nunno is a wonderful boy who lives in Rutherford, NJ. He was born premature and in respiratory distress, and spent three weeks in the NICU. At one month he had to have dual hernia surgery. He did not crawl, walk or talk at normal milestones. At two years of age after months of grueling testing, he was diagnosed with a mitochondrial disease. Within the past ten years, he has spent dozens of nights in the hospital, had pneumonia six times, been on respirators and had two dangerous lung surgeries. He has gone through hundreds and hundreds of hours of therapies and worked harder than any child we know. Recently he was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a direct result of his mitochondrial disease.

    What is Mitochondrial Disease?
    Mitochondrial disease is a rare, commonly fatal, genetic metabolic disorder that has NO CURE. As said before, mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cells. “Mito” disease causes the mitochondria to not work properly. If the mitochondrial are defective, then the body cannot function normally. Picture a city that has a faulty power generating station. Lights would dim, sewer pumps would fail, and the city would fall into ruin. This is what happens to a child with a mitochondrial disease. Common symptoms can include brain damage, cardiopulmonary issues, severe muscle weakness, visual impairment, swallowing problems, digestive issues, among other things. Mitochondrial disease is thought to be linked to Parkinson’s, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and heart disease.

    Why Participate?
    The Nicholas Nunno Foundation needs the generous support of the public to raise money to achieve its goal of raising awareness and supporting research to find a cure for mitochondrial disease. All funds raised by Royal Flush Rallies will go to The Nicholas Nunno Foundation to help raise awareness and directly fund research to find a cure for mitochondrial disease.



    The Poker Run is a car rally that involves an underlying poker theme. There will be five predetermined destination points during the course of the rally. Each point consists of a short break where your team will receive a poker card along with directions to the next rally point. The best five card hand at the end of the event wins. Prizes/Gifts will be given away to the top three hands of the day. Some previous gifts have consisted of detailing certificates, gas cards, and detailing baskets.

    Co-Pilots are recommended for the rally. Turn by turn details, Mileage, and Toll Amounts for each stop will be listed on your direction sheets.

    Alright all! The rally is 2 days away, I hope everyone is ready and excited! It will surely be a fun filled day for all of us. This is going to be the last post and update in this thread before the rally.

    Some of you have expressed concerns about rain in the forecast for Sunday. It looks to be just thunderstorms possible, so unless there is a dramatic change in weather tomorrow we are having the rally on Sunday no matter what. Check back tomorrow evening just in case we have to postpone due to any rain on Sunday.

    Here are some last minute details for everyone:
    1. REMEMBER YOUR WAIVERS! I will have limited quantities with us at the start of the rally. Please see the orginal post and follow the link for the driver and passenger liability waivers. You will not be able to participate without signing the waiver so make sure you don't forget it!
    2. BE ON TIME! We are planning to leave at 8 from Costco to minimize any potential traffic. Meet time is 7:15, dont be late!
    3. THINGS TO REMEMBER: Re-read the things to remember and be sure to remember them! Fill up before you get to the start, bring change/EZ-PASS for tolls, 2-Way radios are always nice. BE PREPARED!
    4. HAVE FUN! This rally was created for you all to have a great time enjoying a passion we all share while benefiting a good cause! Let's make the most out of it!


    I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday! Drive safe to the starting point and be prepared to have some fun!

    Joey
