Penny Jusko, a Cincinnati resident, created the event in honor of her daughter, Madonna, age 8, who has Angelman Syndrome. The purpose of the event is to increase awareness and to raise monies for the Angelman Syndrome Foundation.
Individuals with Angelman syndrome require life-long care. According to the www.angelman.org Web site, “Angelman syndrome (AS) as a neuro-genetic disorder that occurs in one in 15,000 live births. 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.”
