In an ongoing effort to raise awareness, members and supporters are encouraged to participate in events throughout the week.

- Virtual 5k for 5p-, to raise awareness and money for programs that benefit the Cri du Chat Syndrome community. A Virtual Walk can be anything you want it to be, a walk, a run, a picnic, or any type of event!! Over 20 “Teams” have been created all over the world. #5pminus5k
- Where in the World is C5? In an effort to encourage world-side participation, we are asking families to pose for a picture with C5, the mascot of International Cri du Chat Awareness Week (named C5 for Chromosome 5) and share their picture on social media using the #SeeC5 and #criduchatawareness. Looking forward to seeing pictures from around the world and maybe even with a celebrity or two!!
- State Proclamations: Many states have proclaimed May 5 as Cri du Chat Syndrome Day, including: North Carolina, Massachusetts, Missouri, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Florida, Tennessee, Louisiana, & Washington.
