PAWA Champions are generous supporters who fund raise for PAWA by setting up challenges to themselves. They might participate in a charity swim, bike ride or marathon, or explore their creative expressions by hosting a charity gourmet dinner, music soiree or designer cake sale.

Being a PAWA Champion is fun and can engage your family and friends to do something meaningful. To discuss any ideas, please contact
