The ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine with the support of PerkinElmer, ACMG members and other supporters of the ACMG Foundation donate specially-adapted bicycles and helmets to children living with genetic conditions. To learn more about the amazing and heartwarming ACMG Foundation Day of Caring, contact us at acmgf@acmgfoundation.org. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting was not held in person. However, in 2021 the ACMG Foundation presented specially-adapted bicycles and helmets to San Antonio-area children from the Sickle Cell Association of Texas Marc Thomas Foundation and the Down Syndrome Association of South Texas. This event was made possible through the generous support of PerkinElmer. The sentiments of ACMG Foundation President, Dr. Bruce R. Korf, FACMG are shared by many, “We are delighted to be able to continue our annual tradition of recognizing those who deal with genetic conditions every day of their lives through the Day of Caring. We can never forget the challenges faced by those whose needs we are dedicated to serve and hope that this event brings joy to their lives just as it does to ours.”
