Rett Syndrome Association of Massachusetts, Inc. (RSAM) is a non-profit organization that was founded by parents at a time when little was known about the disorder. Its mission, from its inception, has been to provide support and information to families; raise funds to accelerate biomedical research; and to raise public awareness among medical and educational communities.

Thank you to all our friends and family who contributed to our Marathon Team.
