Hello and welcome to Team TC Energy!
My name is Raylene and my son Elliott was born with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS).
Those with PWS will experience a spectrum of challenges throughout their lives: failure to thrive, developmental delays, strabismus, sleep apnea, scoliosis, learning disabilities, skin picking and hyperphagia to name a few.
We participate in the One Small Step walk each year to raise awareness and funds for research initiatives aimed at alleviating some of those challenges. This year the One Small Step walk is going virtual on September 20, 2020!
When I approached TC Energy (my employer) about my involvement in the walk, they graciously agreed to match up to $10,000 of all donations made to this team!
So, if you are considering donating this year, I would ask that you join either as a member of Team TC Energy (and set a personal donation goal) or donate directly to Team TC Energy in order to maximize the funds raised/matched for the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research Canada. You can learn more about PWS and the research that is underway at http://www.fpwr.ca/research/.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
