One Small Step for PWS 2015

I was so honored when my friend, Gwyn, asked me to shoot the One Small Step for PWS event again this year. Gwyn’s daughter, Ellie, was diagnosed with PWS when she was a few weeks old. She is now 3 and I am so impressed with how much her parents and other PWS parents fight for their kids. Gwyn even challenged herself to run the 5K this year, along with AJ, one of the PWS kids. Everyone was so excited to see them both cross the finish line. This year’s One Small Step event was a huge success, just like last year. This year’s One Small Step 5k was a superhero theme. Everyone who crossed the finish line got a super hero cape and the kids got masks at the end of the fun run. After the race, everyone enjoyed healthy snacks, bounce houses, face painting and fun music. It is such a fun event to be a part of and it is so exciting to see so much money being raised for PWS research. I am praying for a cure for Ellie and the other PWS kids that I have had the privilege of meeting at these events. If you want to know more about PWS and the ongoing research for a cure, check out the FPWR website. I am hopeful that PWS kids, like Ellie, will one day be able to live life full!
