This tournament will benefit the International Rett Syndrome Foundation in honor of Hannah Hooks. The inspiration behind our tournament is 10-year-old Hannah Hooks. Hannah lives in Lubbock and is in 5th grade at Lubbock-Cooper West Elementary. Hannah was born with a rare disease called Rett Syndrome. Rett syndrome is a rare genetic neurological disorder that leads to severe impairments, affecting nearly every aspect of the child’s life. In April of 2022 IRSF hosted their National Science and Family Summit and presented an update on a treatment for Rett Syndrome. Rett Syndrome has been treated in mice and there are multiple clinical trials going on throughout the world to bring a cure to the males and females living with Rett. A treatment for Rett will also lead to breakthroughs in many other diseases and disorders. In order to continue research, organizations like International Rett Syndrome Foundation need funds to contribute to the many companies who are seeking a treatment. INFORMATION & REGISTRATION
