Pay to Play Day Raises Money for Angelman Syndrome Foundation

By MarksNelson on May 22, 2017 in Marks Of Kindness

MarksNelson staff members sported their favorite t-shirts at work for a good cause. On Friday, May 12, 2017, the firm held a “Pay to Play” day benefiting the Angelman Syndrome Foundation of Kansas City. For a $5.00 donation employees could wear their favorite t-shirt and tennis shoes.

Angelman syndrome (AS) is a rare neuro-genetic disorder that occurs in one in 15,000 live births. Due to lack of awareness, AS is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy or autism. Characteristics of the disorder include developmental delay, lack of speech, seizures, and walking and balance disorders. Individuals with Angelman Syndrome will require life-long care.

MarksNelson’s “Pay to Play” day, which is part of our Marks of Kindness program, raised over $400 that will go towards helping AS patients and their families here in Kansas City.
