Oscar Meyer Weinermobile coming to Colfax

Oscar Meyer Weinermobile
Thanks to Linda Collison for sending this in!

The Oscar Mayer Weinermobile will be rolling down Colfax Avenue this Sunday, April 14, to the Park House Tavern for a birthday party, no less -- and to raise awareness for Colorado's  22q Clinic.  The public is welcome to stop by and have a look at the iconic symbol that will be rollin' down the 'Fax. 
22q -- short for 22q11.2 deletion syndrome -- is a genetic disorder in which a small piece of the 22nd chromosome is missing.  It is believed to affect as many as 1:2000 kids.  The deletion can cause a wide array of problems, a few of which are heart defects, respiratory problems, immune deficiencies, and major learning differences.  Every system of the body can be affected by the deletion. 
Stop by Park House Tavern, Madison and Colfax, between 3:00 - 5:00 PM and check out the iconic Weinermobile up close.  And learn more about how professionals from Childrens Hospital Colorado and National Jewish Hospital are working together to help kids with 22q deletion syndrome.
