Abby’s Run for Dandy-Walker Syndrome

The third annual Abby’s Run for Dandy-Walker Syndrome on April 12 at Frisco Square, in Frisco, will benefit the national nonprofit Dandy-Walker Alliance. There will be a USATF-sanctioned and timed 5K race, a one-mile fun run/walk, entertainment, games, food, awards, a raffle, inspiring stories and more for the whole family to enjoy.

 

Dandy-Walker Syndrome, a malformation of the brain’s cerebellum, affects one in 2,500 births, sometimes requiring brain surgery, and there is no cure. More awareness, support, funds for research, and treatments are needed for these children. This event began because of a special local child named Abby, who has Dandy-Walker Syndrome and hydrocephalus. Her family is dedicated to raising awareness to fund research and support.

 Location: Frisco Square Blvd, Frisco. To register, volunteer, sponsor or donate, visit DandyWalkerTexas.org.
