Moebius Syndrome Foundation

Regional Events

Part of the Moebius Syndrome Foundation’s mission is to build connection and community between families and individuals with Moebius syndrome and similar facial differences. To support this initiative, we work with a team of volunteer regional coordinators throughout the United States to organize annual awareness, social, and fundraising events. 
The Moebius Syndrome Foundation provides resources, financial support and giveaways for these events. We can also help coordinate event marketing and presenters.
