Girl Power 2 Cure

#RiseAboveRett in 2020!

Girl Power 2 Cure is fighting every day to:

  • Support and encourage Rett Syndrome families
  • Educate, raise awareness, and promote literacy for individuals with Rett Syndrome and other complex-needs conditions
  • Raise research dollars to support cure-focused and symptom-relieving treatments for our loved ones

There are many ways you can help… sponsor an event, host a giveback with a local business, promote a Facebook fundraiser, or simply commit to recurring donations. We have tons of ideas and can help start to finish! Contact Amei ( and let’s get to work conquering Rett Syndrome!

Celebrating Disney Princess!

Disney Princess Half Marathon Race Weekend is in the books! Team GP2C consisted of 160 runners who conquered the 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and the Fairy Tale Challenge!

Over the course of four days, we advanced our mission by:

  • Spreading awareness to thousands of people at the runDisney Health and Fitness Expo
  • Providing Rett University One-on-One Communication & Educational Consultations
  • Passing out over 5,000 GP2C flower stickers to runners as they approached the start line each morning 
  • Celebrating our runner’s victories as they crossed the finish line
  • Holding an amazing team dinner filled with families, friends, giveaways, appreciation and a surprise visit from Princess Elsa!
  • Raising funds for research with the goal of symptom-focused treatments and ultimately a cure for Rett Syndrome

Looking forward, we would love for you to join us in 2021 as we celebrate our 10th Anniversary at Disney Princess! This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other families that understand your journey while celebrating the amazing Rett warriors we all love so much!
