Join businesses, schools and individuals from around the globe on April 7, 2017 by hosting a Hats ON for Progeria Day Fundraiser, a fun way to raise awareness and funds for PRF and all the special children with Progeria.
What is Hats ON for Progeria?
Hats ON for Progeria is similar to a dress down day except it’s WAY MORE FUN! Wear your favorite baseball hat, fedora, shower cap or PRF hat to work or school and show your support for The Progeria Research Foundation by wearing your hat and making a donation. Wear your very own PRF hat for the event! Hats are tan or blue and available in the PRF webstore.
