We wish the best to all of these runners as they begin their extraordinary journey to the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon.”

The FPWR staff and Board of Directors are thrilled by the potential of this opportunity. We are confident that this partnership will not only help increase our total investment in PWS research but also provide an incredible platform to educate the larger community about Prader-Willi syndrome and our organization’s mission.
