About Prader-Willi Syndrome
Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a variable and complex genetic neurobehavioral disorder resulting from abnormality on the 15th chromosome. It occurs in males and females equally and in all races. Prevalence estimates range from 1:15,000 to 1:25,000.
PWS typically causes low muscle tone, short stature if not treated with growth hormone, cognitive deficits, incomplete sexual development, problem behaviors, and a chronic feeling of hunger which, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity.
Join Us for HOPE
AXE Throwing is one of the fastest growing sports in the world where competitors attempt to throw hatchets at a circular target to score points. AXES FOR HOPE will combine both competitive and social axe throwing to create an event where people with any level of experience can enjoy the experience and raise money to provide HOPE to families living with Prader-Willi Syndrome.
AXES FOR HOPE will feature Social AXE Throwing, a IATF Marathon League, a Silent Auction, Raffles and other exciting events throughout the day.
