“The Best kind of people are the ones that come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds. The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people that love you simply for being you. The Once in a Lifetime kind of people.” -Unknown
The pink ribbon...the shamrock...the hot air balloon...the sneaker...the puzzle piece. It's time for our flower to represent our girls and be a beacon of strength, beauty and hope around the world. "We've come so far as a community in encouraging and inspiring others to see what we see -- competence, intelligence and worth. That it’s our flower representing Rett Syndrome is indescribable. I am so grateful for each and every staff member, volunteer, family, teacher, donor, student, business and mentor who has helped tend to our flower along the way; nurturing, sharing and representing to the world what we are all about." - Ingrid Harding, Founder and President of Girl Power 2 Cure.
Co-founder of Riplaces, David Nicholson is quoted saying, “we’re elated to partner with GP2C during Rett Syndrome Awareness Month. When this way to give back was suggested, we couldn’t wait to see how we could make an impact. Both Riplaces and GP2C are local to the Jacksonville area and the partnership makes a lot of sense. We have recently been getting feedback at the running events for the other uses of Riplaces. Finding a local partnership to illustrate this is nothing shy of a blessing.”
