On Sunday, October 13 we will be taking a leisurely 2-mile walk at beautiful Stony Creek Metropark, to raise money for the CdLS Foundation.
Inspired by individuals with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS), this annual event takes on the challenge to better the lives of people with the syndrome—many of whom struggle to talk, eat and walk. There is no cure for CdLS, but you can help ensure services and programs for families remain by supporting the CdLS Foundation.
The CdLS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution that provides compassionate licensed social workers who assist in connecting individuals with CdLS and their families with experts from various medical, educational and therapeutic specialties who dedicate their invaluable knowledge and resources on a volunteer basis.
Funds raised are critical as the organization is the only one of its kind in the United States that supports the 2,800+ known individuals diagnosed with the rare syndrome and the 10,000+ who remain undiagnosed.
Location: Stony Creek Metropark at 4300 Park Drive Road in Shelby Township
Registration: Begins at is 9 a.m. The walk starts at 9:30.
Starting line: We’ll start at the usual spot -- the Mt. Vernon picnic shelter -- with refreshments.
