On Saturday, May 26, 2012, families and friends of children affected by the genetic condition known as Williams Syndrome gathered at Hebrew Park in Lanoka Harbor for their annual picnic.
The Williams Syndrom Association (WSA) picnic featured games like Hot Potato. The kids went on an egg hunt and even got a visit from Diego from the Nick Jr. show "Go, Diego, Go!" The Lanoka Harbor Fire Company also came by with a fire truck. The children were happy to be cooled off with the fire hose.
Williams Syndrome is a rare genetic condition that occurs in one in 8,000 births. The syndrome is the result of missing genes that can cause the narrowing of blood vessels and could also lead to developmental delay, cardiovascular problems and other symptoms.
