Just the beginning!

OK -- I know, pretty cheesy to post a pic of a check, right?! Well, this is the biggest check Girl Power 2 Cure has ever gotten and I have a feeling this is just the beginning! Since its start in 2006, we have raised over $250,000 from over 2,600 donors!

This check is from the Chase/Facebook vote where we placed 17th out of tens of thousands of charities in June. This $20,000 will help us get to the next level. We have our minds set on great new heights!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us, voted for us, encouraged us and keeps our dream of a cure alive through the hope and joy and beauty of the precious girls and their families struggling with Rett Syndrome.

A special thanks to our team members:
Kelly Butler, Family Support and Event Coordinator
Terri Vejrosta, Coordinator
Lisa Commette, Director, Garden of Hope and Community Outreach
Kathryn Corena, Communications and Development

Our Mothers' Advisory Board:
Erin Bleske
Kristy Brooks
Jen Dalton
Bridget MacDonald

Our Board of Directors:
Roger Brooks
Kevin Coloton
Laura Labbate

I am so honored to work with such amazing people who are inspired by this work. Your time and dedication is incredible. We welcome everyone to join our organization's efforts.

Get your Girl Power On!
