It was a beautiful, sunny day on Sept. 18th and Abby was feeling great! She was happy to see so many friends and relatives who came out to support her. Abby was especially excited to see all the little girls with Rett syndrome, some who were at their first event, having just been diagnosed.
Team Abby raised over $7,000 this year for the Ontario Rett Syndrome Association. We continue to be extremely grateful for the financial contributions. The Ontario Rett Syndrome Association in led solely by volunteers. Our Board of Directors is a hard-working group of parents and friends. This year, I was elected as Secretary and I will serve on the Board for two more years. It's exciting to welcome new families who are also dedicating their time, skills and energy to ensure "better tomorrows" for everyone living with Rett syndrome in Ontario.
Below are some photos of Team Abby. You may also want to take a few minutes to see the photos 50+ photos on the Ontario Rett Syndrome Association Facebook page.
Heartfelt thanks for all the support in 2016! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
