This is our 10th Anniversary year...Let's make it the best one yet!   Since 2010, TEAM WSA has been participating in the Long Island Festival of Races, with runners and walkers competing in everything from the mile walk, 5K, 10K up through the full marathon. Through those years, we have raised more than $300,000 for the Williams Syndrome Association.    Registration is open now for the Long Island Festival of Races and will close on April 5th.   More about Long Island Festival of Races 2019
