"You may not hear my words, but look into my eyes and listen with your heart."
Unfortunately, we've decided to go online for the 2021 Strollathon due to health and safety concerns. Feel free to wear your snazzy Lilly's Friends blue t-shirt on Oct. 23 and enjoy your own nice walk. We'd love to see pictures! Please let us know if your team shirt is ready for a update and we will also have official Strollathon t-shirts for sale.
This event, like others across the country, raises critical funds for research in finding treatments and (fingers crossed) a cure for Rett Syndrome. We chair this event, which has raised more than $700,000 in the last 13 years. Our hope for the current research and success of new clinical trials remains high with the drug Trofinetide being the first to enter Phase 3 clinical trials. We are so grateful to have a Rett syndrome clinic right here in St. Louis that helps families of all ages get the highest quality care and the oppportunity to participate in these exciting clinical trials. A portion of the funds raised from the St. Louis Strollathon will support the Rett Spectrum Clinic at St. Louis Children's Hospital through IRSF's Center of Excellence clinic network.
Thank you so much for your support. Your help is our hope!
