Angelman Syndrome Foundation National Walk
The Angelman Syndrome Foundation Walk has been an essential source of funding for the ASF since its start in 1999. What began as a single volunteer walk site, now includes 28 walks across the country and is recognized as the top fundraising event for the organization. Through education, information, research, advocacy and support, your participation in the National Walk helps all of us at ASF take strides toward improving the lives of those impacted by AS. With your help, we are moving closer to powerful treatments and an eventual cure for Angelman syndrome. We are continually grateful for the support that we receive year after year.
Help Us Give Them a Reason to Smile.
The smiles on the faces of individuals with Angelman syndrome (AS) belie a life marked by severe developmental delay, speech difficulties, seizure disorders and more. And yet, they go on smiling. That’s just one reason the Angelman Syndrome Foundation seeks to advance the awareness, understanding and treatment of AS, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.
Made up of families, caregivers and medical professionals who care about those with Angelman syndrome, the Foundation is a national 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to support individuals with AS, their families and others who care. With your help, we can all give them a reason to smile.
