REDONDO BEACH, Calif., March 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A six year old boy with Prader-Willi syndrome is preparingto go to class but is becoming wildly upset because there's a slight change in his schedule. Police are helping search for a twenty-seven year old man with PWS who slipped away from his group home in the middle of the night in search of food.
To raise awareness of PWS, the Prader-Willi California Foundation will hold its 17th Walking for Prader-Willi Syndrome events on April 30 at Griffith Park in Los Angeles, and on June 17 in San Francisco at Crissy Field West Bluff Picnic Area. Registration begins at 10:30 am; the WALK starts at 11:00 am; the fun lasts until 2:00 pm. The public is invited to pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the music, face painting, and fun! Walk with us in person or support us online. Either way, be a part of something meaningful!
Prader-Willi California Foundation is the only organization in California dedicated solely to providing education, support and advocacy services to Californians with PWS, their families, and professionals. For more information visit www.PWCF.org or call the PWCF office at 310-372-5053.
