Our 2020 Giving Partner

Landon's League Foundation

Thier mission is to support the development of gene therapies for rare pediatric genetic diseases and help those affected by granting adaptive equipment to help them and their families with activities of daily living.

Landon's League Foundation is a nonprofit charity founded in 2018 by Joe and Lauren Walsh, on behalf on their son, Landon who was born with a rare unnamed genetic disease caused by a single gene mutation.  Their mission is to support the development of gene therapies for rare pediatric genetic diseases and help those affected by granting adaptive equipment to help them and their families with activities of daily living.

Landon's League Foundation has partnered with the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis to accomplish the steps necessary to ensure the safety of individualized gene therapies, as they are one of few medical centers nationally recognized to do so for rare undiagnosed genetic diseases.  Additionally, they have partnered locally with Dierbergs Markets by granting adapted shopping carts suitable for children who require extra postural and head support to help those affected and create easier shopping experience for their family(s).
