Families for Fragile X will host its ninth annual Monkey Madness 5K Run and Family Fun Walk presented by LJ Partnership Guggenheim on April 29, 2018 at Zoo Miami. The run/walk will raise funds for research and spread awareness of Fragile X Syndrome. Caused by a gene mutation preventing the body from making vital proteins, Fragile X is the most common form of mental impairment. Symptoms can range from learning disabilities to intellectual or severe cognitive disabilities, delays in speech and language development. One in every 3,600 males and one in every 8,000 females are affected, and 33 percent of those with Fragile X also have autism.
