Fragile X Families of Phoenix is hosting a 5K on July 22nd. Please join us to help raise both awareness and funds for Fragile X Syndrome. We will have raffles, a DJ, and refreshments. Fragile X Families of Phoenix is a Community Support Network through National Fragile X Foundation. We are raising money to bring Fragile X experts to our families, teachers and therapists. This will allow our children to receive the most current and appropriate therapeutic/teaching strategies. This 5K will allow us to raise funds for The National Fragile X Foundation, The Fragile X Clinic at Phoenix Children's Hospital and our local Fragile X Families of Phoenix. Please join us in this wonderful opportunity!
