Event description

Description

Inspired by our city's great tradition of beer and our prevalent love of ice cream, Pints for Pitts is the event I have started here in Cincinnati to help continue research for Pitt-Hopkins Syndrome in hopes of raising $10,000.

The Pints for Pitt Hopkins Research Walk/Run/Cycle event is a family friendly event to help raise money and awareness of the Pitt-Hopkins Syndrome that my daughter Sarah was diagnosed with 7 years ago. She is 15 now and one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. Her diagnosis however prevents her from being able to live an independent life as she needs full time assistance with care, feeding, dressing, and is also non-verbal. The day she was diagnosed there were fewer than 100 known cases worldwide, today that number is closer to 500. In the last 5 years, a research foundation has been created and the 7 labs now conducting research are hopeful a treatment, or a cure, may be found. Funding medical research from a grassroots effort is a daunting task but our small and mighty group has made great progress in just a few years - and you can help.

Bring your family out for an afternoon of activities and fun at Lunken Playfield while bidding on silent auction items. We will have pints of root beer floats for sale to help continue to raise funds, mini icream pints, along with a cake walk, and other of fun activities.

Can't make the day event? Would you rather join in for a drink at a pub instead? Meet us at (location TBD) for an evening of drinks, small bites, and more silent auction options. All sales of pints will also help to continue the fundraising.

Either way you can enjoy a pint (ice cream or beer), some time with others hoping to help a girl, her family, and hundreds like her find a voice - literally. The more the merrier. Spread the word, bring your friends, heck - bring your dog... and join us.

Is your schedule already jam-packed? I get it. Please consider donating an item to used in our silent auction. You can email me directly at pintsforpitthopkins@gmail.com. Or just donate cash. I know you hear it all the time and it’s still true : your small or large donation will make a difference. Every dollar makes another Petri dish, hour in the lab, or medical report more possible and gets us closer the the possibility of a treatment or cure.
