The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research was established in America 2003 by a small group of parents who saw the need to foster research that would help their children with Prader-Willi syndrome lead healthier and more fulfilling lives.
The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research welcomed its first international affiliate, FPWR Canada, in 2007. Founded by families of people with PWS, FPWR Canada now serves as Canada’s sole national PWS organization.
Vicki Almond, board member of the FPWR UK and director of the Stockport based pub company currently, established the connection in 2013. Almond Family Pubs now dedicates its entire fundraising to the FPWR UK. They hold fundraising events throughout the year, including their One Small Step Pub Walk.
