Thank you to everyone who participated in our first ever Virtual Walk for PWS! With your help we were able to raise $54,000 toward providing a full life without limits for people with PWS. This year we were not able to physically walk together so instead we introduced the Team PWCF Challenge which allowed people to walk at their own pace throughout the entire month of July. This led to an exciting week of fun online activities that brought the PWCF community together virtually! The PWCF Community Week was a week full of different challenges that were led by many talented volunteers. We walked, danced, stretched and even rolled together! If you missed out on Community Week, you can rewatch all of the different challenge days below.

We finished our Walk with a unique livestream event featuring appearances from musician Seth Romano, Senator Scott Wilk, and The Big Bang Theory’s Mayim Bialik! You can rewatch the entire livestream here.

This year we may be virtual but we are always in this together.
