We have all heard that "It takes a village to raise a child". It is also true that it takes the entire PWS community to eliminate the challenges of Prader-Willi Syndrome. The International One SMALL Step Walkathon is a way for everybody in the PWS community to work together regardless of what country we live in or what organization we are affiliated with. We have all come together to achieve our mission, which is: "To eliminate the challenges of PWS, through the advancement of research."
100% of net proceeds go towards funding projects listed in the Prader-Willi Research Plan.
The One SMALL Step Walks take place around the world including:
- United Kingdom
- United States
And has multiple participating organizations including:
- FPWR Canada
- FPWR UK
- Prader-Willi Belgium
- Prader-Willi France
- Prader-Willi Syndrome Association USA
- PWS New Zealand
We have found success by staying focussed on our mission and creating a simple way for everyone to work together. We follow 3 simple steps:
1) Create the PWS Research Plan
2) Raise Money
3) Fund the projects on the PWS Research Plan
