We are right in the middle of FPWR month and things are going even better than we could have predicted. We have had great success with our first walk in Seattle bringing in $32,000, the second annual walk in Ontario, Canada that brought in $40,000, and our first walk in Los Angeles that netted over $20,000!!!

The good news is that this is just the beginning! For information about events during the last two weeks of September in Texas, Pennsylvania (2 events), Washington, D.C., Florida, Massachusettes, and Kentucky, check our website at www.fpwr.org. You can click on any of the events on the front page and it will take you to details of the event and contact information for the organizers, as well as a map to the event location.

The proceeds from these events go to support PWS research through the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research.
