Hats ON for Progeria
SAVE THE DATE! HATSON FOR PROGERIA 2018 – FRIDAY, APRIL 6

What is Hats ON for Progeria?
Hats ON for Progeria is similar to a dress down day except it’s MORE FUN! Wear your favorite baseball hat, fedora, tiara or PRF hat to work or school and show your support for The Progeria Research Foundation by showing off your hat and making a donation. You can even wear your very own PRF hat for the event! Hats are tan or blue and available in the PRF webstore, now only $12!
