When Lauren Walier, a young woman living with Cerebral Palsy (CP), dances across the ballroom floor with Dancing With The Stars professional Mayo Alanen, her CP takes a backseat. And that’s exactly what will happen on Saturday, November 16th

Lauren’s non-profit organization, The Make Lemon Aide Foundation for CP, will host its Lemon Twist Gala II event at Asbury Hall. 

The event raises funds to train WNY physical therapists on an innovative therapy called Symptom Recovery Model Therapy. SRM Therapy is what enables Lauren to glide across the dance floor like a pro. By supporting The Make Lemon Aide Foundation, you’re giving others in WNY living with CP an opportunity to live their best life ever.
