BENEFITING: GIRL POWER 2 CURE INC
ORGANIZER: Girl Power
For the past three years Sparkle Athletic, and our community of runners that make up #teamsparkle, have run literally hundreds (if not thousands of miles) in order to raise awareness and money for Rett Syndrome and Girl Power 2 Cure. This terrible disease has trapped close to half a million girls in their bodies, leaving them unable to speak, walk, or even use their hands. We run because these girls can't, but we believe someday they will.
Over the past three years our #teamsparkle community has helped us raise nearly $100,000 to battle this disease. Today, we are asking you to help us raise $10,000 more for Girl Power 2 Cure & their fight against Rett Syndrome.
ABOUT GIRL POWER 2 CURE:
Girl Power 2 Cure is a dedicated and vibrant nonprofit organization leading a movement to end Rett Syndrome, a severe neurological disorder that primarily affects girls.
We are here to respond to the urgent need for support , education, mainstream awareness and treatments. For us, change starts with a simple belief - that girls losing the ability to walk, speak or use their hands for a lifetime is unacceptable.
Our inspiration is our flower: always in bloom with hope and positive energy, ready to grow for our cause worldwide.
WHAT GIRL POWER 2 CURE DOES:
We educate and raise awareness. Because we must speak for those who can't.
Through webinars, events, and awareness campaigns, we have inspired a movement of thousands, and need thousands more.
We support families. Because they are the heroes, tirelessly caring for their daughters, sisters and granddaughters.
We open our arms to every family, meet them where they are and provide them with the resources and support they need to fight for their daughters and for a cure. From helpful product reviews and hands-on training to fundraising efforts, we walk with them on the journey that many of us have made ourselves.
We fund research. Because the world needs these girls.
They are brave, they are bright, and they are beautiful. We cannot rest knowing Rett Syndrome is curable. We are determined to see the girls and women who are suffering live better lives. Through a strong partnership with the Rett Syndrome Research Trust, we fund research that is crucial to developing treatments and a cure.
We inspire action. Because change starts with a simple belief - that girls losing the ability to walk, speak or use their hands for a lifetime is unacceptable.
Our flower is our brand, the cornerstone, always in bloom with hope and positive energy ready to grow wherever there is inspiration to fight for our cause.
