GP2C team – What a fantastic September! Rockin’ for Rett Huntsville was a smashing success with over 350 people in attendance and over $67,000 raised in the fight against Rett Syndrome. But perhaps even more significantly, 350 people now have greater awareness of Rett Syndrome and the GP2C mission (thanks to Roger Brooks and Susan Norwell for providing their compelling thoughts and insights!). And, so many thanks to the Huntsville (all-volunteer) event team who planned and executed this wonderful evening – it was a shining example of servant-hearts coming together for the good of our children and our cause.
Additionally, we also executed two very important educational events in September – Rett U Live in Jacksonville, FL, and our first of two in-person seminars at the University of Alabama-Huntsville designed for special needs educators and therapists. These events brought families, educators and other professionals together and provided the tools and techniques that are so needed to enrich the lives our complex-needs children.
And of course, it’s Rett Syndrome Awareness month! Our amazing team has compiled several resources for your utilization as you help us spread the word. Please visit our GP2C (Girl Power 2 Cure), Rett University (Rett University), and Rett Girl (Rett Girl) Facebook pages, or contact Amei and Kristi for any support you might need to help bring awareness to your friends, families, co-workers and extended networks. Also, don’t forget to register for Disney Princess 2019 coming in February! Links are included in our newsletter, and we still have bibs available for multiple events/distances!
Please let us know if you are executing any awareness or fundraising campaign for October… we have many resources available and would love to help administer, promote and recognize your event. And from all of us at Girl Power 2 Cure and Rett University, have a great October!
