BENEFITING: Retts Roost
ORGANIZER: Retts Roost
EVENT: Rett's Roost Superhero 5K
EVENT DATE: Sep 18, 2016
The story of Rett and his parents, Deana and Jim, is one of heroism and inspiration. That is why we are participating in this race.
The unfortunate reality is that any one of our children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews could at any time be diagnosed with a life changing pediatric cancer. Medical resources are more readily available but what is not, is the experience that Rett's Roost provides--a retreat for families with a child afflicted by cancer to experience art, yoga, therapeutic games, nature walks, meditation, music, family portraits, massage, reiki, healthy meals, and more. For many, this experience cultivates some small sense of normalcy amidst the chaos of a cancer diagnosis.
As a mother myself, I know that an experience like that provided at Rett's Roost, is a resource that I would want and need. As such, I am determined to help this organization grow to serve even more families in honor of a gorgeous little boy--Rett Cavan--who I sadly never got to know.
Thank you for considering support of our involvement in this race!
With love, Briana and Max
