Team Rett Runner Profile: Henry McGreen
What inspired Henry to run?
I am from Narragansett, Rhode Island. Growing up, I played hockey and lacrosse but was never a runner. I actually dreaded running. But when COVID-19 shut down all the gyms, I didn’t know what else to do for exercise and tried running. As it turns out, I really enjoy it. I decided to run a marathon and thought it would be a great opportunity to raise funds for a good cause. Running with Team Rett for Rett Syndrome Angels was the obvious choice. My brother’s best friend had a sister named Grace, who lived with Rett Syndrome and recently passed away. I am running this marathon in honor of Grace Reddington and hope to raise $10,000 for research, awareness, and support.
