We are a committed group of people in greater Boston coming together to raise awareness of Fragile X syndrome and support FRAXA Research Foundation. As part of the Step Up For Fragile X campaign, all the money we raise will support FRAXA's mission to find effective treatments and ultimately, a cure for Fragile X syndrome, the most common inherited cause of autism and intellectual disabilities.
During July, we join other Fragile X families and friends across the country coming together as one strong community. We love Boston and we know that the culture of giving to support great causes is very strong here. We firmly believe we are all in this together.
FRAXA is also illuminating 50 landmarks, building and bridges across North America in teal to celebrate Fragile Awareness Day on July 22nd, including Prudential Center and the Zakim Bridge. This is all part of what we are calling the #TealTakeover. Join us.
