I am running for Rett Syndrome along with TEAM EVA. TEAM EVA is running for the 1st annual Hambeltonian Marathon. WE as a team are raising money for Rett Syndrome research.
Rett Syndrome is the most physically disabling of the autism spectrum disorders, primarily affecting girls, and usually strikes by 18 months of age. It is caused by mutations on the X chromosome on a gene. As the cascade of Rett Symptoms descends, a child loses acquired skills, normal movement and speech, then begins the long regression that may leave her in a wheelchair, unable to communicate or use her hands. Extreme anxiety, Parkinson-like tremors, seizures and orthopedic problems are common. Please help me reach my goal.
