Run4Rett – Virtual – October 2022

You’re invited to the virtual Run4Rett, taking place from October 1st to October 31st, 2022.

October is Rett Awareness month, what better way to raise awareness!

Run by yourself or with friends and family – you can run whenever, wherever – run on a treadmill, around your neighbourhood or any course of your choosing. This is an opportunity to unite via social media with other families and friends supporting the same cause. Again this year we unite in our own backyard instead of Richmond Hill. You will have your own finish line, but you won’t be alone! You will be connected together with the unbreakable spirit of all our loved ones with Rett syndrome.

You can set up a fundraising page through your Running Room account, after you have registered for the Run.

The 18th annual 1k and 5k walk / run is a signature fundraiser for the Ontario Rett Syndrome Association (O.R.S.A.).

All proceeds fund crucial activities organized by O.R.S.A.’s volunteer board of directors. These include:

  • Funding of 3 Rett syndrome clinics in Ontario
  • The Hope Fund which provides grants to Canadian researchers
  • Bi-annual family conference and medical symposium
  • The Canadian Rett Syndrome Registry

Please JOIN US! Walk or run for the 1K or 5K with your social circle! Share your pictures with us to be featured on social media.
