Team Rett: Tracy Freeman

Team Rett Runner Profile: Tracy Freeman

What inspired Tracy to run?

My beautiful son Aidan was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome at 2.5 years old. My son, my beautiful boy, sadly passed away on March 7, 2021.  I miss him more than I can explain. I decided to run in his honor and continue raising funds, with the hope that families who have a child with Rett can find the support that I found.  It’s a community none of us would choose to be part of, but having a lifeline is very important.  I always said that he is my heart, and I am his voice.  Even with him gone both of those remain true.  Aidan Michael is my reason for running.  He was the strongest person I have ever known.
