·Anne Wilkes of Hartwell Road ran in the Boston Marathon on April 19 for the first time, dedicating her run to her youngest child Alyssa. Three years ago, when Alyssa was almost two years old, she was diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS), a rare genetic abnormality occurring in one in 15,000 births. It is characterized by low birth weight, failure to thrive, low muscle tone and scoliosis. Symptoms vary from child to child, and Alyssa has been very fortunate. Today, with the support of her family, the Carlisle Public Schools and the PWS clinic at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, she is a thriving child.
Anne hoped to increase awareness of PWS by running the marathon, and also to bring attention to the Prader-Willi Marathon Fund, which dedicates all of the money raised to help parents and families with traveling expenses, equipment purchases and housing needs.
Although Anne had to drop out of the race after 21.6 miles due to illness, she has managed to raise $8,000 so far and plans to run in the Bay State Marathon. Further contributions can be made to the fund and mailed to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, 125 Nashua Street, Boston, 02114.
