FACEBOOK PROFILE PIC FRAME
We also encouraged our community to join OPWSA in spreading awareness about PWS by updating their Facebook profile pic with our OPWSA PWS Awareness Month frame.
STORIES FROM OUR COMMUNITY
Throughout the month, we'll also posted some stories of members in our community sharing their experiences with PWS.
Join us for PWS Awareness Month!
DID YOU KNOW? - FACTS ABOUT PWS
Each day we shared a "Did You Know" fact about PWS. While these posts had been created for PWS Awareness Month, we hope that you can utilize them year round as needed. We often hear from families and caregivers that extended family or friends don't truly understand PWS, so these small pieces of information may help paint a clearer picture of what living with PWS is like. These will be coming to our website soon.
PWS EVERYDAY CHALLENGE
We also ran the PWS Everyday Challenge which encouraged individuals with PWS and their supporters to get involved in a variety of daily activities such as walking 2km, completing puzzles, other physical and mindfulness activities, as well as arts and crafts. Participants that complete a full month's worth of activities and raise at least $300 towards OPWSA's programs and supports, will be entered into a draw for a $50 Indigo gift card. Congrats to Allie Hoszko! Our PWS Everyday Challenge culminated with a virtual dance party on Friday, May 28th, PWS Awareness Day.
VIRTUAL DANCE PARTY
On Friday, May 28th at 4pm OPWSA hosted a FREE virtual dance party in celebration of PWS Awareness Day!
Michelle Hillier from Experience Groove will be hosted a 30 minute Virtual Dance Party/Wellness-Focused Movement Experience for individuals with PWS of all ages. Using movement and positive messaging for over two decades for 1 million+ people of all ages and abilities, Michelle, recent TEDx presenter, provides inspiring, embodied and innovative ways for people to connect and recharge while building CONFIDENCE, nurturing CREATIVITY and making CONNECTIONS. When you are in Michelle's presence and move with her, "You Can't Get It Wrong!"
