Spina Bifida Wisconsin is the only state-wide nonprofit organization serving families impacted by this condition. We recognize the unique challenges that people with spina bifida have to face - multiple surgeries, mobility issues, shunts, latex sensitivity, limited options for care, school and work accommodations to name just a few. When our families encounter obstacles, they consistently go ABOVE AND BEYOND to over-come their difficult situation. This event celebrates the accomplishments of our members and raises money for our programs and services that extend across Wisconsin. We hope you can join us, meet some of our members that have gone ABOVE AND BEYOND, support our mission, and have a great time.
