Raffles, research, resources and beyond!
Hoping this letter finds everyone settling into the school year and getting ready for a little fall weather (and football). We are thinking often of our southeast friends (and several of our GP2C team and staff members) as they wait for Hurricane Dorian to pass. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
We are also anticipating a fantastic program for Rett Syndrome Awareness Month coming in October (just around the corner)! Please stay tuned to GP2C.org, GP2C Facebook and our other social media pages. We will have daily posts for you to share with your community, and to help raise awareness and educate your followers. – read the rest of Kevin’s letter to the community.
Our September giveaway is brought to you by the Benik Corporation, specializing in customized bracing! Benik has graciously donated a gift certificate for a Benik Hinged Elbow Wrap (E-505V brace). The E-505V elbow wrap is popular with the Rett Syndrome community as it helps to prevent hand mouthing and associated repetitive hand movements.
