Risers 4 Rett

October 5, 2017 - October 8, 2017

On the weekend of October 5-8th, 24 teams will participate in the 6th bi-annual Risers 4 Rett (R4R) charity fly fishing tournament to benefit the multidisciplinary Rett Clinic at the Children’s Hospital-Colorado. Risers 4 Rett is a fundraising arm of the Rocky Mountain Rett Association (RMRA), which founded the Rett Clinic. In 2017 the Rett Clinic was recognized as a “Center Of Excellence” by the International Rett Syndrome Foundation, and is used as a model for current and planned clinics in other states. RMRA’s goal for 2017 is to raise an additional $25,000 to cover the cost of a half-day Clinic that will allow providers to see 30 more follow up patients per year.

Twenty four-person teams will have access to world-class public and private water, fishing two full days with professional guides on the Gunnison River, the East River and the Taylor River. Throughout the weekend, awards will be given for most fish, and biggest fish caught, and for participants and guides, who go “above and beyond” helping with fundraising and/or event support.

R4R holds two tournaments per year, one in spring and one in fall. To register go to Risers4Rett.org.
