Hundreds Take One Small Step For The Cure

APPLE VALLEY, Minn. (WCCO) – Hundreds gathered in Apple Valley Saturday for the One Small Step Walk.

The walk was held to raise money for research on Prader-Willi, a genetic disorder that causes feelings of constant, extreme hunger.

Saturday’s walk raised more than $41 thousand, and the top fundraiser was Collette Joncas – mother of two-year-old Nick Joncas, who suffers from the disorder.
Nick’s hunger is so severe, his parents have been forced to lock up all of the food in their home for his protection.

The One Small Step walk was emceed by WCCO’s own Aristea Brady.
