Williams Syndrome Awareness Month

 


May is Williams Syndrome Awareness Month!

Thousands of people are expected to join the Williams Syndrome Association this year to raise awareness for Williams syndrome, a genetic condition that remains virtually unknown to the general public, educators and many doctors. Included in the awareness events are walks, runs, golf tournaments, and a host of other types of events in cities across the United States. Most walks and runs take place in May for awareness month, but it's not mandatory and a few are in April and June. 

Please join us to raise awareness for these extraordinary individuals with Williams syndrome and help the WSA provide the critical programming and support needed to help them reach their full potential.

To register or to make a donation, please select an event location below.  Confirmed events are listed and become clickable when details are finalized by coordinators. Don't see an active event in your state? That means we are open for an awesome volunteer to start one--we provide lots of support and ideas! Contact your regional coordinator or the WSA.  If there is not a walk in your region this year, but you still want to officially fundraise, you can create your WSA fundraising page here.   Thank you!
