October is Rett Awareness Month!

The team at the RMRA developed a social media outreach plan hat will include photos, stories, RMRA events and Rett facts. Please follow RMRA’s Facebook page and like, comment and share the posts.

We are also working to engage our community in Wear Purple for Rett Awareness on October 21st. We are requesting that families, schools, churches and corporations, etc. take a photo of their group wearing purple and post it to our Facebook page or send it to us so that we can post it. You can help by emailing your contacts and encouraging them to participate. And, of course, by organizing your own group photo.

We have developed a flyer that you can share as well as a short email that you can personalize to your liking. To download a pdf file of the flyer, click here: wear-purple flyer

We would greatly appreciate your assistance with spreading the word! We are hoping this will be a fun and easy way to engage the Rett families and new supporters.



Hello XX,

Did you know that October is Rett Awareness Month? Throughout October, Rocky Mountain Rett Association will be sharing facts and photos about Rett Syndrome. We are also organizing groups – schools, businesses, play groups, run clubs – to wear purple on October 21st, take a photo and post it to Facebook! Sounds fun, right?!

We would love your participation on October 21st!  Would you be willing to organize a group to participate in this simple event?

Thank you for your assistance in generating awareness about Rett Syndrome.
