Families who have daughters with Rett Syndrome are heading up teams. Each
of their team members will raise money for their team by reaching out to their
firends, as well as hosting mini dress-up events! Think tea parties, bake sales,
pot luck dinners --- even runners running in crazy outfits!
Although families are busy recruiting friends and family, this event is OPEN TO
ANYONE interested in helping to find a cure for hundreds of thousands of girls
We are excited to share that Rett Syndrome is potentially reversible
and may be the first curable neurological disorder. We need your help
to get us there!
Rett Syndrome is as prevalent as Cystic Fibrosis, Huntington's Disease and
ALS, but most people have not heard of it.
It is the most severe form of the Autism Spectrum Disorders. The answers are
out there, let's find the cure!
