UNITE with us for the Million Miles Walk to help The Sturge-Weber Foundation build a better world for those with Sturge-Weber syndrome and Port-Wine Birthmarks. For 35+ years the SWF has been supporting patients and investing in research for this rare disease. This year we are walking to raise awareness and raise money for vital research, Adults with SWS support programs, and a new online educational website.
