The ASF provides information, support services & programs to more than 300,000 individuals with AS and their families annually. We currently have 3 medical clinics in operation.

The ASF hosts an annual, National Walk in over 40 locations across the country and in Canada & Mexico. This event draws more than 10,000 participants and is our largest fundraising event annually. Our Walks are a fun way to volunteer and get involved with some great people for a great cause!
