Boston Marathon is Virtual

September 14, 2020

We are saddened that our Boston Marathon 2020 in person was cancelled.  “In the absence of the usual in-person marathon, the Boston Athletic Association announced that it will hold a “virtual” race for the would-be participants.” Our runners continued to train and pushed themselves for the love of our girls and boys living with Rett Syndrome. The announcement came that participants in the virtual marathon will be required to complete a continuous marathon within a six-hour time period any time between September 7 and 14 and show their solo run using an app. Three of our marathon runners signed up for the virtual run to be able to earn their medals and awards. An extra shout out to Maurice, Meredith and Richard we wish we could cheer you on at the finish line in person, know we are your biggest cheerleaders!  Sending you some love below! 

Rooting for our RETT TEAM for all their perseverance and commitment.

Your Cheerleaders are sending...


And we hope next year in 2021 we can cheer you on in person! 

RSAM is always on the look out for new runners. Perhaps you want to start training now and apply for a spot, TEAM RETT is preparing for 2021. Contact us if you would like to run for our nonprofit.
