9/20 Family Building Expo

All are welcome at the Family Building Expo, a free event scheduled for Saturday, September 20 from 9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. at the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia.

The expo will gather a broad cross-section of the adoption community, including state and private adoption agencies, adoptive parents, support groups, adoption specialists in international and private adoptions, foster care, adoption attorneys, as well as specialists in assisted reproductive technology.

WHERE: Norristown Farm Park

The Lymphomathon is a non-competitive 5k walk where survivors, family, friends, community , and corporate teams walk in honor and in memory of those whose lives have been touched by lymphoma. Over half a million people are currently living with lymphoma in the United States-- the most common form of blood cancer in adults and the 3rd most common cancer overall among children.

9/28 IDF Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency

A fundraising walk designed to support thousands of individuals and families living with Primary Immunodeficiency across the U.S. Participants can organize a team, join an existing team, or register as an individual. All proceeds benefit IDF. Registration is available for walkers and non-walking supporters. All are welcome!

Primary immunodeficiency diseases, or PI, affect children and adults who are born with an immune system that is either absent or severely compromised, which leads to a greater risk of infections. In most cases, there is a pattern of chronic infections before PI is suspected. There are more than 200 types– some are relatively common and others are quite rare and while there are approximately 250,000 people diagnosed with PI in the U. S., thousands more go undetected.
