Thank you for your interest in Dress Up 2 Cure Day! This is the perfect
way to kick off Autism Awareness Month in April as well as introduce
curriculum focused on Disability Awareness.
Dress Up 2 Cure! (sm) is organized by Girl Power 2 Cure, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to
raising awareness for Rett Syndrome -- a devastating neurological disorder that strikes mainly
girls. The Dress Up 2 Cure(sm) event kicks off nationwide on April 1, 2012 and continues
throughout April during Autism Awareness Month.
Rett Syndrome is the most severe form of autism and the leading cause of severe impairment
in females. The condition randomly strikes another baby girl every 90 minutes, leaving them
unable to speak, walk or use their hands. Medical experts consider Rett Syndrome research the
key to understanding related disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
School kids across the country will get into the spirit of April Fools’ Day wearing mismatched
outfits, crazy hats and all kinds of silly attire to support research for Rett Syndrome.
Today, there is no cure. But Rett Syndrome is CURABLE! Amidst the mass confusion going on
within their central nervous systems, they are smart, strong, and waiting patiently for us to
unlock the door to their recovery. Families around the globe are celebrating recent research that
proves Rett Syndrome is reversible!
We hope you will join us in raising the much needed funds to make Rett Syndrome the first
reversible neurological brain disorder.
