Join in the fun at the Happiest Walk in Canada and support a great cause! This 4th annual Nova Scotia Walk in support of the Canadian Association for Williams Syndrome is a grassroots, parent volunteer-run registered charity dedicated to spreading awareness, raising funds and supporting families touched by Williams syndrome.
Support their walk and enjoy live music, grab bags, a BBQ, bouncy castle and face painting. Tickets for the event are by donation. Your gift will connect families, support research, broaden awareness and give families greater access to Williams syndrome specialists through education and advocacy.
What is Williams Syndrome?
Williams syndrome (WS) is a rare genetic condition that occurs in about 1 in 10,000 births. It is caused by a series of deleted genes on chromosome 7 and occurs equally in all genders and every culture.
It is characterized by medical, physical, learning and social issues including cardiovascular disease, low tone, developmental delays, learning disabilities and an inability to read social cues. By contrast, it also often results in striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music.
