Mission Statement

The mission of FPWR is to eliminate the challenges of Prader-Willi syndrome through the advancement of research. High-quality research will lead to more effective treatments and an eventual cure for this disorder. By working together, we intend to free our loved ones from the burdens of PWS, allowing them to lead full and independent lives. http://www.fpwr.org/


We will be hosting the first Thanksgiving Day Race for Northeast Denver on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2015 at Central Park in Denver, CO (Stapleton Neighborhood). The race will feature a timed 5K Fun Run/Walk and a kid’s fun run, free for children under the age of 10. We are anticipating over 300 participants and expect that number to increase over the coming years.

We have joined forces to raise funds for the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research (FPWR), an organization whose mission is to eliminate the challenges of PWS through the advancement of research.

Our collective goal is to create an event for Northeast Denver with a focus on families, active lifestyle, and community engagement. Our hope is that the Harvesting Hope 5K not only raises money to find a treatment for PWS, but that it also raises awareness of the overwhelming rise in childhood obesity in America today. We believe wholeheartedly that community and family involvement is key in cultivating healthy lifestyles, and this race is dedicated toward achieving that goal with a fun, Thanksgiving tradition.
