Did you know Boston has continued on this event for ten consecutive years despite many challenges? Not even a Pandemic is going to stop us! It all started as Blue Sky Girls with an idea from Dr. Sasha Djukic from the Rett Clinic/ New York to have families from all over the world gather at the same time and climb stairs.
“Each year in October the Blue Sky Girls was an event that is celebrated at multiple sites around the world. The purpose of the event is to celebrate Rett Syndrome Month and the strength and will that girls with Rett Syndrome have shown to keep going no matter the odds and the difficulties they face every minute of their lives.
Climbing stairs is a symbolic gesture, because climbing takes you upward and forward even if it is difficult.” Just the past recent years, the name changed to Blue Sky Day as more boys have been diagnosed with this disorder.
