Ella’s Hope to Hold STT Cross-Island Challenge Ride Fundraiser for Rett Syndrome

Ella’s Hope is about Rett syndrome. Imagine the symptoms of autism, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s, epilepsy and anxiety disorder … all in one little girl. Ella Gaspard, a Virgin Islander, was diagnosed with this devastating condition.

The Ella’s Hope Mission

  1. to educate and extend global awareness of Rett syndrome and
  2. to fund research grants to world-renowned organizations and universities in pursuit of a cure. The foundation’s hope is
  3. to find a cure, so every little girl that suffers from this condition can live a life full of recovery, joy and contribution.

Ella’s Hope invites the public to join it on the first STT Cross-Island Challenge Ride to be held on July 3.

The event is a bike challenge for serious bikers and family bikers alike. The first of its kind to be held on St. Thomas, it will have a 20-mile “Tip of the Spear” bike ride for adults starting at 6 a.m.

Then, at 8:30 a.m., the serious bike riders will meet with family riders/runners/walkers for a Family 5K parade down the promenade from Port of Sale to Crown Bay where participants will meet up with Ella for refreshments, games and more.

Registration is available online at www.cyclevi.org  where people can register to ride or donate to support Ella’s Hope. Over 300,000 little girls and women are affected by Rett syndrome worldwide.

One hundred percent of all proceeds raised from the STT Cross-Island Challenge will be donated to Rett Syndrome Research Trust www.reverserett.org to fund research grants for a Rett syndrome cure. Visit www.ellashope.com/werideforella for more information.
