Don't miss PWCF's 17th Annual Walking for Prader-Willi Syndrome event! 

Why do we WALK?

  • Because... No Family should have to feel alone. WALKS bring families together.
  • Because... Appropriate supports and services means healthier, happier lives. WALKS bring hope.
  • Because... WALK donations fund vital supports and services

Attendees will enjoy music, fun exercise-based games, arts and crafts activities, and a face painter for the kids. Pack your lunch and stay for the fun!

Honor someone special with a WALK Footprint Sign!  Personalize your sign with your own special message and we'll place it along the WALK path to surprise your special Walker. Corporate Footprint Signs welcome!

Can't attend? Place a PWS WALK Sign in your yard. Keep your sign up all year long for even greater awareness!  

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a rare, complex genetic disorder that causes a drive to eat that is never satisfied no matter how much food is eaten, a metabolism that is almost half the normal rate, weak muscles, growth failure, learning problems, behavior problems, and more. PWS interferes with independent living and impacts every aspect of the individual’s life.

Prader-Willi California Foundation is here to help. PWCF is the only organization in California that is solely dedicated to providing California families and professionals the tools they need to support their loved one, patient, student or resident with PWS. We work hard to improve the quality of life of all who are challenged by PWS.

Please donate today to support our programs and services. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. TIN 95-3480752
