Risers 4 Rett (R4R) is a part of the Rocky Mountain Rett Association (RMRA). Rett Syndrome is a neurological disorder that affects young girls, mostly with loss of speech and motor control. It can severely disrupt breathing and eating, cause skeletal deformities and physical seizures, and induces tremendous emotional duress.
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.
The Risers 4 Rett event raises money to fund the Rett Clinic, and traditionally takes place twice a year, near the end of April and the end of September. We use a team format so you and a friend can join us for some fun, healthy competition with other teams. Individual participants are always welcomed as well and will be paired up at the event. We'll be fishing the Gunnison River, the East River and the Taylor River near Gunnison, Colorado. We have access to world-class private waters in the area so your experience is sure to be memorable and exciting!
