It is also located next to The Legends - shopping, dining, and more!
All are welcome to join in this no fee event. And there is still time to sign up to be a Team Captain or join an existing team by making a donation in any amount! "Virtual Teams" and "virtual team members" are encouraged to support our efforts from a distance.

Our Strollathon benefits the IRSF - International Rett Syndrome Foundation whose mission is to support those with Rett syndrome (RTT) and their families, fund promising research, and increase vital awareness. For more info on IRSF: www.RettSyndrome.org RTT is found almost exclusively in females. Typically girls with RTT have normal growth and development through age one, after which they lose speech and purposeful hand movements. They most often develop scoliosis, gastrointestinal issues, and seizures. Most with RTT require full care, but although they have significant struggles with communication they easily steal hearts with their smiles and expressive eyes.
If you are not comfortable donating on-line, have questions, or need more information please email: NevadaStrollathon@gmail.com or call 775-200-8788.
Your support means the world to us for it gives us the resolve to keep moving forward toward treatment and maybe a cure. Your help truly is our hope!
