Wildcats for Sarah

THE STORY:

Sarah is a young 15-year-old girl battling Rett Syndrome. Her parents, Ingrid ('91) and Peter Harding ('90), both graduated from Davidson. Ingrid founded Girl Power 2 Cure 10 years ago to help her daughter and tens of thousands of other girls and women around the world.

This organization has made big impact on how to educate these girls who are nonverbal and have no hand function. It was previously thought patients with Rett were severely mentally impaired. We now know they are intelligent and just need the right tools to overcome their disability to communicate. Thousands of girls need our help. Let's band together as Davidson Alum to support this great cause - one that is near and dear to all of us: education for all.

GP2C has also contributed over $1 million to research since its founding. There is great hope for these girls. The gene was discovered in 1998 and it was proven reversible in 2007. Research advances in gene therapy are extremely promising. Rett Syndrome is poised to be the first curable childhood neurological disorder. 

Your donation will help GP2C get to first place and win this challenge for a $1 million grant from Revlon!

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 WE DO
 
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.
