WSA Awareness month and our walk fundraisers are the most important annual fundraising events for the WSA. Each year, these events provide more than 70% of the revenue we need to fund our programs and services for individuals with WS and their families. Every dollar raised truly makes a difference in our ability to offer life-changing resources.
More than 85 cents on every dollar raised at the Walks (virtual and in-person) goes directly to families - providing the funding for all of our specialized programs as well as scholarships to camps, convention and post-secondary programs, and travel assistance for families who need special medical intervention and treatments for their children or adults with Williams syndrome.
By joining forces with the WSA family members and friends, both locally and throughout the country, you are enhancing the future for all individuals with Williams syndrome. Thank you for putting your trust in us!
Since its inception, more than 100,000 people have joined forces at more than 400 walks across the US to help increase awareness of Williams syndrome, and provide critical funding for WSA programs.
In 2020 and again this year, funding has been critically affected by the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Fundraising at the virtual and in-person walks is crucial to enable the WSA to continue to support families with the comprehensive education and resources on WS, that enable them to provide the best possible future for their loved ones with Williams syndrome.
With your help to raise awareness of Williams syndrome and increase funding for specialized programs and scholarships and a continuum of resources we can ensure that individuals with Williams syndrome will be able to live healthy and meaningful lives.
