2016 Charlotte Strollathon

aleaseacker@gmail.com

We are pleased to be coordinating the 3rd Annual Strollathon for Rett Syndrome Research to benefit the International Rett Syndrome Foundation. This year the event takes place on October 8, 2016. A strollathon is similar to a walk/run, but we stroll in honor of the girls who cannot walk, to raise money for the girls afflicted with this terrible neurological disorder. Rett Syndrome is a rare debilitating genetic disorder that occurs most exclusively in girls. It’s caused by a random gene mutation on the X chromosome. Free
