EMANUEL SYNDROME AWARENESS DAY - NOVEMBER 22 (11-22)

Emanuel Syndrome is caused by the presence of an extra chromosome, made up of parts of chromosomes 11 & 22. Our group knows of about 200 cases, and with reported cases, know of about 500 in the world. We know there are more out there. Children with Emanuel Syndrome can be born from a parent who carries a balanced translocation between chromosomes 11 & 22. 

Emanuel Syndrome Day Virtual 5k

November 22, 2017

Sign Up



Because Emanuel Syndrome is a partial duplication of the 11th and 22nd chromosomes, November 22nd is Emanuel Syndrome Day.  Children from all over the world are affected with this rare syndrome that results in severe physical and cognitive disabilities.  

Since we cannot be together on this day, we thought it would be fun to race together in the virtual world!  In other words, this is not an actual road race!  You are encouraged to walk or run in your local neighborhood on race day and post a photo on the race Facebook page and your social media page with a link to www.emanuelsyndrome.org to raise awareness.  

So join us on November 22nd to run while raising awareness and funds all at the same time!


Meet twins Kadi and Abbey from the US!
