For our Charity of the Month we will be raising funds as well as awareness for Fragile X syndrome (FXS). Fragile X Syndrome is a genetic condition that causes intellectual disability, autism, behavioral and learning challenges, as well as various physical and behavioral characteristics.
Currently, there is no drug treatment to specifically treat Fragile X Syndrome. The medications that are prescribe treats symptoms such as attention deficit, hyperactivity, anxiety, and aggression. Charities such as FRAXA are crucial to raising awareness and funds for the individuals affected by diagnose with Fragile X Syndrome since medication and supportive programs (speech therapy, occupational therapy, and individualized educational as well as behavioral programs, etc.) can be expensive and unavailable. 10% of your VA Runner purchase on items with our logo will go toward their cause.
