Our First Ambassador - Ali Vincent!

Everyone here at Girl Power 2 Cure is doing the signature Ali "jump" in the air! We are thrilled to be working with Ali Vincent, the first female winner of The Biggest Loser, as our first official "GP2C Ambassador." Not only does she embody resilience, ambition and the power of positive thinking, Ali has a huge heart and has fallen in love with our Rett girls.

We first met Ali at the Disney Princess Half Marathon where she immediately put on a GP2C shirt and became a member of Team GP2C.


Ali shares, "The moms behind Girl Power 2 Cure instantly touched my heart by sharing their daughters' stories, and I knew I wanted to do anything and everything I could do to help." 

Ali has added information about GP2C and Rett Syndrome on the Ali Gives section of her website, and is going to help us grow Gardens of Hope around the country.

"Girl Power 2 Cure allows opportunities for everyone to get involved," says Ali.  "I advocate finding ways to feel empowered through growing/building strength and confidence so true beauty can shine through. I can't think of a better way than growing a Garden of Hope within your community or wearing the GP2C flower on your running shirt to remind us that through small acts of kindness, smiles can bloom on little girls faces everywhere."

Like the title of her new book, "Believe It, Be It," Ali is ready to also believe in the power to cure Rett Syndrome and wants to play a big role in making that dream come true.

She says, "I am passionate about helping to bring awareness to Rett Syndrome and raise funds to support continued research. Research has already proven that it's not an IF-a-cure-is-possible, it is a WHEN-a-cure-will-be-available."

Thank you for believing in our Rett Girls Ali! We look forward to lots of great work together in the months ahead.
