Chicago IT managed service provider shows support for those affected by rare neurodevelopmental disorder

CHICAGO, Sept. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Stratosphere Networks will sponsor GRIN2B Foundation's first cocktail

reception fundraiser, Gather for GRIN2B. The event will take place on Monday, October 7 at Found Kitchen and Social House in Evanston from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will help fund research on GRIN2B-Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder. GRIN2B is a gene on the short arm of the 12th chromosome and is part of a family of seven genes that encode proteins that create a receptor that sends chemical messages between neurons in the brain, according to GRIN2B Foundation.

Changes to the GRIN2B gene are currently referred to as GRIN2B-Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder. Individuals affected by a GRIN2B variation often experience developmental delays, low muscle tone, and speech delay or lack of speech, among other symptoms. Some have cortical visual impairment, seizures, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and/or intellectual disabilities. So far, GRIN2B Foundation knows of several hundred people around the world diagnosed with this rare disorder.

"We're proud to be one of the sponsors of GRIN2B Foundation's first cocktail benefit," said Kevin Rubin, president and CIO of Stratosphere Networks. "Our company is dedicated to improving the lives of others in our community and beyond, and our team fully supports all efforts to help families and individuals affected by GRIN2B-Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder."

Stratosphere Networks has an ongoing relationship with GRIN2B Foundation, which is a parent-run organization dedicated to providing support for those affected by GRIN2B variations and furthering research on the GRIN2B gene. Stratosphere sponsored the organization's first Family Conference in Atlanta last year. The Chicago-based IT managed service provider delivers comprehensive technology solutions to businesses across all industries. Stratosphere offers services to empower internal IT teams and managed cybersecurity solutions, in addition to managed IT services.
