PtF5k participants will enjoy running a safe scenic course in Neptune Beach with large shade trees. All 5k runners will receive a custom tech shirt (register by April 24th), custom finisher medal, and other goodies.
Your 4-legged friends are welcome to join in the fun and will receive a custom dog treat.
Grow Where You’re Planted
We started Power the Flower 5k a couple of years after our daughter Evie was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. Rett Syndrome is a rare neurological disorder that affects her ability to walk, speak, and use her hands. Despite her physical limitations, Evie and other girls with Rett Syndrome, are believed to function mentally at a much higher level than previously thought. Evie is just one of several girls living in NE Florida who fights the effects of Rett Syndrome every day. Research has already proven that Rett is reversible in mice. A CURE is possible!
All proceeds from PtF5k will help bring Rett U Live! to Northeast Florida in September 2018. Rett U is committed to empowering parents, educators, and therapists with knowledge and strategies to help Rett Syndrome students and other individuals with complex communication needs reach their highest potential. Imagine being given the opportunity to prove what you CAN do when the tools and techniques are accessible.
Come walk, run, or roll for Rett Syndrome!

In February 2013, our two-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. Girl Power 2 Cure (GP2C), their staff, members, and supporters, have become a beacon of light for me and my family. They bring an air of excitement, youthfulness, and fun to a very serious diagnosis.
