February is Rare Disease Month. February 15th is International Angelman Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness and funding for Angelman Syndrome.
The purpose of this day is to:
- Raise awareness worldwide of the condition
- Mobilize people to action & encourage fundraising for the individual organisation in their country
- Promote research and educational resources in the organisation’s own country
- Remember those people with Angelman Syndrome who are no longer with us
A common thread within the FAST community has been to come together in local communities to commemorate the day with other families over a meal. Hence, the concept of feASt was born!
The idea is to arrange an event, it can be anything from a cupcake stand, morning tea, a casual backyard affair or a formal sit down dinner. Follow our guidelines to assist in making your feASt a meal to remember.
On February 20, our friends at Vivint will host a very special IAD dinner feASt event at their Gym in Provo Utah.
