Some of our staff members, along with their friends and family, got together this past weekend to raise money and show their support for the Angelman's Walk. We would typically be joining all the other fundraising teams in our area for a fun morning of events and the walk, but this year's event was virtual. We still had a great time walking Sheldon's Marsh, enjoying the gorgeous weather!
The annual AFS walk supports treatments and eventual cures for Angelman syndrome. It is a "rare neuro-genetic disorder that occurs in one in 15,000 live births or 500,000 people worldwide," often confused with autism, cerebral palsy, and Prader-Willi syndrome due to some common similarities. You can learn more about this and ways to support the Angelman Syndrom Foundation on their website.
