Hi all. On September 23rd 2012, Wings to Fly Foundation is proud to present our first annual Day for Angels 5k run and 1.5mi family fun walk. The event will be held at Alum Creek North park on Main Street in Westerville and benefit Angelman Sydrome Research. For you hard core runners out there, this is a timed and chipped race managed by Premier Races, and for our families and walk participants, the route is family and special needs friendly, and following the run/walk there will be music, fun, food, and entertainment for kids of all ages!
Angelman Syndrome (AS) is a neuro-genetic disorder that occurs in one in 15,000 live births. AS is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy or autism and characteristics of the disorder include developmental delay, lack of speech, seizures, and walking and balance disorders. Individuals with Angelman syndrome will require life-long care.
Wings to Fly Foundation is an Ohio non-profit organization with the mission to 1) provide children and families of children with special needs information on local resources and benefits, 2) establish family support groups and play groups, 3) provide seminars on family, financial and support planning, and 4) to offer grants to families with special needs children for adaptive or therapeutic equipment and/or services.
