After much consideration, our RettGetAway committee has decided to postpone the June 2020 RettGetAway in San Diego. The health of our children is of utmost concern. Once it is deemed safe and sound to convene large groups in public spaces again, we will evaluate a future Rett GetAway.
Many were working to create this ‘life without limits’ opportunity. A special thanks to the Kayla Mosca Foundation, Surfing Madonna, Surfin’ Fire, Merlin’s Magic Wand in association with Legoland San Diego, The Cassara Carlsbad by Hilton, our CA State Rep Sherri Brady, and ACADIA Pharmaceuticals.
We hope that all of our families and partners emerge from this situation whole, intact, and able to plan an even more extraordinary RettGetAway!
If you have made any travel bookings for the RettGetAway, we advise you to cancel them now while forgivable and with no penalty.
Rettsyndrome.org will be returning the group Legoland tickets awarded by Merlin’s Magic Wand so that a future award can be made again to either our group or to individuals who may choose to apply at another time (they only allow one Magical Day Out per family, one time)
We appreciate your understanding, and we hope that you all stay healthy and safe.
Please direct any questions to Paige Nues at email@example.com or Jennifer Mosca at firstname.lastname@example.org
