FASD ~ Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder


August 11, 2021

Dear Families,

We hope you will join us Saturday, September 11 at 9am for the national Run Walk: a virtual 5k event that can happen at your own pace wherever you are to raise awareness of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. We will be walking in the Raleigh area

Many of you live outside of the Triangle and we encourage you to organize your own get together wherever you live with your family and friends.  The dream of Rebecca Tillou, author, runner, and FASD self-advocate, and who developed Run FASD is to encourage people with FASD, their allies, and supporters to make this invisible disability visible

In order to select a location in the Raleigh area, we need to know how many people will be joining us.  Please email me at  with your name and how many people will be in your party.  Kids are welcome! 

Register and receive a t-shirt and a medal, as well as support the efforts of NOFAS to advocate for the bipartisan FASD RESPECT Act which has been introduced to the US Senate and House. See the website for other ways that you can influence your Congressperson and Senators Burr and Tillis.

Hope to see you September 11.  Let me know if you are organizing a get together in your area of North Carolina; I can help you advertise.  And afterward, please send me pictures so we can showcase our FASD efforts in North Carolina.  September is International FASD Month.
