Team Rett Runner Profile: Nicola Hensch
What inspired Nicola to run?
I am 18 years old and graduating from high school this year. I have attended numerous Blue-Sky Days and Boston Marathon events for Rett Syndrome Angels throughout the years, so I am well acquainted with this incredible community. In 2017, my brothers, mother, and I created an adaptive swim program for Rett Syndrome Angels. Along with my Club Swim teammates, we helped participants move through the water, providing a type of water therapy and building incredible relationships along the way. I am running my first marathon for Team Rett to raise awareness of Rett Syndrome and other neurological disorders, especially among kids my age who don’t always realize the challenges that those with neurological disorders are facing.
