Join us at The Happiest Walk in Canada

The walk for the CAWS is an annual event put on by the Canadian Association for Williams Syndrome, a grassroots, parent-volunteer run registered charity dedicated to spreading awareness, raising funds and supporting families touched by Williams syndrome.

Support our Walk

When you donate to the Walk for the CAWS, you have a rare opportunity to make a real difference. Williams syndrome is largely unknown to the general public and currently only funded through walk donations and family fundraising. No overhead here. Your gift will connect families, support research, broaden awareness and give families greater access to Williams syndrome specialists through education and advocacy.

What is Williams Syndrome?

Williams syndrome (WS) is a rare genetic condition that occurs in about 1 in 10,000 births. It is caused by a series of deleted genes on chromosome 7 and occurs equally in all genders and every culture.

It is characterized by medical, physical, learning and social issues including cardiovascular disease, low tone, developmental delays, learning disabilities and an inability to read social cues. By contrast, it also often results in striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music.
