I am participating in the Rett Ride Across America – a cycling event to raise awareness and funds for Rett syndrome. I am riding to support my amazing sister, Lindsey! I hope you can join our team or donate to my efforts to support Rettsyndrome.org in finding a cure.
Want to join Team #Ride4Linds?!
Let’s ride 100 miles in the Month of October! Whether you want to hit the pavement on your two wheeler or join me in virtual Peloton rides, we can rock this challenge together as a team for our beautiful, strong Linds!
Want to donate?!
Your donation will help fund important research and critical family support. This cause is very important to me and I appreciate your help as we fight for a cure for Rett syndrome!
Want to learn more about Rett Syndrome?!
Rett syndrome is a rare neurological disorder which becomes apparent in infancy or early childhood. It occurs in 1 in 10,000 births and primarily affects females, though it can occur in boys. The children develop normally for the first 6 to18 months and then begin to regress – or lose acquired skills. Rett syndrome causes changes in the brain that lead to lifelong impairments, including inability to speak, seizures, scoliosis and breathing difficulties. More than half of those affected lose the ability to walk. Most require maximum assistance with basic daily activities.
