FLY FISHING TOURNAMENTS FOR A GREAT CAUSE

Risers 4 Rett is part of the Rocky Mountain Rett Association (RMRA). Rett Syndrome is a neurological disorder that affects young girls, mostly through loss of speech and motor control. Rett can severely disrupt breathing and eating, cause skeletal deformities and physical seizures, and leads to tremendous emotional duress. As you can imagine, Rett presents many challenges to patients and their families. Fortunately they receive love, therapy and assistance through the Rett Clinic at the Children’s Hospital of Colorado.

Risers 4 Rett hosts two annual Fly Fishing Tournaments to benefit the Rocky Mountain Rett Association. You and a friend can form a team for a fun competition with other teams. Don’t have a teammate? We’ll pair you up at the event with another “a-fish-ionado”! The tournaments take place in the world-class waters of the Gunnison, Taylor and East Rivers.

Upcoming event:

Spring Risers 4 Rett: April 26th - 29th, 2017 @ Almont Resort in Almont, CO

HISTORY

Risers 4 Rett is in its 5th year of fundraising for the Rett Clinic at the Children’s Hospital. The Clinic requires a minimum of $60,000/year to provide support to Rett families in the Rocky Mountain Region.

Risers for Rett was started by a group of avid anglers in 2013. We welcome ALL levels of fly fishers (beginners to advanced) and other individuals who wish to support this important cause.
