    about Running for Abby!

We are all friends and family of Abby Genzlinger. Abby is 15 years old, and she has a disability called Rett Syndrome. Because of this horrible disease, Abby cannot speak or use her hands well. She has seizures and scoliosis, and a few years ago she actually had to get major spinal surgery and was hospitalized for almost a month. But, in spite of all this, Abby continues to maintain a positive attitude and is an individual that can be loved, respected and admired. We are determined to push ourselves to complete this half marathon in her honor. And, as we train, we will remember that she needs to push herself like this, and probably even harder, every single day just to communicate. Please consider making a donation or joining our team to help give Abby and others with Rett Syndrome a voice and fight for a cure!
