Join us for PWS Awareness Month!

 

Throughout May, PWS Awareness Month, OPWSA ran our PWS Awareness campaign on our Facebook Page and Instagram

DID YOU KNOW? - FACTS ABOUT PWS

Each day we shared a "Did You Know" fact about PWS. While we know that the facts we shared are well known to the members of our community, we shared these facts so that our members could in turn share them amongst their own networks and communities to help spread PWS Awareness, and educate others on the challenges that individuals with PWS face.

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.

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.

 

We encourage those participating in the challenge to share your journey with us and be sure to include the hashtag #pwseveryday on your photos and posts.

Our PWS Everyday Challenge culminated with a virtual dance party on Friday, May 27th, PWS Awareness Day. 

STORIES FROM OUR COMMUNITY

Throughout the month, we also posted some stories of members in our community sharing their experiences with PWS.
