Welcome to Sharleen's Strollathon page!
I am walking in the 5th annual Iowa Strollathon, Rettsyndrome.org’s signature fundraising and awareness event, to raise money for essential research of effective treatments and to find a cure for Rett syndrome. This casual activity will be a little different this year but has the same has a fun and energetic atmosphere and goals.
Our team is called Paiges's Parade. It is in support of our granddaughter, Paige, who was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome about 3 years ago at the age of 2. Rett syndrome is a genetic neurological disorder occurring almost exclusively in females and becoming apparent after 6-18 months of early normal development. The resulting regression leads to lifelong impairments, including lost speech, seizures, scoliosis, irregular breathing patterns, and more than half of the children and women lose the ability to walk. Those diagnosed with Rett syndrome require maximum assistance with basic daily activities.
Your donation will help fund important research and family support. This cause is very important to me and my family and we all appreciate your help as we fight for a cure for Rett syndrome!
Please join our team for a variety of fun activities/events culminating with a (hopefully) live event the first week of October 2021 which is Rett Syndrome Awareness Month. There will be many different ways to participate until that date like a Scentsy lfundraiser, and hopefully chances to purchase yummy goodies! And there is always the chance to donate to our efforts to support Rettsyndrome.org in finding a cure! Your help is our hope!
