For our family, the Run4Rett has always been a chance to get together and show support for Abby and for all those with Rett syndrome. When Abby was very young, I used to say, if she ever learns to walk, we’re going to have the biggest party! After several months of intensive physiotherapy, she did learn to walk. But by then, we were dealing with full regression and one devastating new symptom after another. I see the annual Run4Rett as that party where we celebrate Abby year after year.
For me, the emphasis has to be on the moral support and social gathering. When people start to learn more about Abby and get to know other families, they naturally want to also support O.R.S.A. financially. Every year, I look forward to meeting new families and reconnecting with all the others. Most of all, itís the day of the year when Abby wears her biggest smile. Who doesn’t love a party?
