2022 Run4Rett

The month of October encompassed Rett syndrome awareness and the 2022 RUN4RETT virtually.  Families and friends could participate in their own backyard. Connected together with the unbreakable spirit of all our loved ones with Rett syndrome. 

The event registration, for over 10 years, has been found at the Running Room site.  Thank you for believing we can make a difference, with every participant, registration and donation made. 

Thank you to the Swartz and Dodds families. Your support and generous donations of auction items every year has been unwavering. O.R.S.A. has been able to count on you since the beginning.  Once again we had a student volunteer assisting with the auction photos.  Thank you Tyler Polon. 

Together you are making a difference to those affected with Rett syndrome and their families.  

The success of the 2022 virtual event and silent auction speaks volumes of the support from the families and friends of O.R.S.A.  The total combined money raised was just over $39,000.   Thank you to all those that participated, registered, donated and bid.  Together we are making a difference. 

Mark your calendars, September 24th, 2023 at a new location, the Richvale CC at 160 Avenue Road, Richmond Hill, Ontario, see you there!
