ANGELMAN SYNDROME FUNDRAISING WALK - MAY 2017

Somerset's own Kathy Rokita again hosted the 3rd Annual Indy Angelman Syndrome Walk. Angelman syndrome (AS) is a rare neuro-genetic disorder that occurs in one in 15,000 live births. AS is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy or autism due to lack of awareness. Characteristics of the disorder include developmental delay, lack of speech, seizures, and walking and balance disorders. Individuals with Angelman syndrome will require life-long care.

The Indy walk took place on Saturday, May 20, 2017, at West Park in Carmel and was a great success in raising funding and awareness! To learn more about AS and how you can help, visit the Angelman Syndrome Foundation website.
