Challenge

Rett Syndrome is a rare neurological disorder that affects 1 in every 10,000 girls. It is a very debilitating disorder that robs what seems to be a normal girl of her ability to speak, radically affects their gross and fine motor skills, and is life threatening.

Solution

The Dry Fly Ride for Rett Syndrome will help to fund both current and upcoming research projects and clinical trials to find a cure for Rett Syndrome. Rett Syndrome affects approximately 1 in ever 10,000 children.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of finding a cure for Rett Syndrome is far-reaching as such a breakthrough would lead to advances in other neurological disorders like Autism, Parkinsons, and Cerebral Palsy.
