Reverse Rett Minneapolis

Rett is a severe neurological disorder that is caused by a random mutation on a single gene. Rett Syndrome is like having autism, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s epilepsy, and scoliosis all at once. More than 350,000 children and adults have Rett. We are parents, realatives, and friends of those effected by Rett, who are hosting a fundraiser on April 12, 2018 at Edina Country Club from 6:30-9:00 PM to raise money for research to find a cure for Rett Syndrome.  Please join us.
