BENEFITING: Research Down Syndrome

EVENT DATE: Apr 13, 2014

Lara Font

THE STORY:

Parker's Heroes is BACK! A test race in February 12 weeks after Lara's back surgery proved successful, so she will run her first race of the season on her 44th birthday!  Help make this her best birthday ever - supporting Parker and his friends sounds like the perfect gift!

Important things are happening NOW in Down syndrome research because of organizations like Research Down Syndrome (RDS). Currently, three human clinical trials are underway. The trials are being conducted by Roche Laboratories, Balance Therapeutics and Elan Pharmaceuticals. The Roche and Balance trials are investigating compounds that are shown to restore more balanced neuro-transmission, and improved learning, in mouse models. The Elan trial is testing a compound that may reduce beta-amyloid aggregation. This aggregation is a contributor to plaque formation observed in persons with Alzheimer's disease.None of this research would be possible without donations and unfortunately Down syndrome research is UNDERFUNDED!

Join us in our efforts to raise awareness and funding for Down syndrome research...scientific studies aimed at developing treatments to improve memory and learning in persons with Down syndrome.


Please donate here, and form your own team to Run Research Down Syndrome (RDS), a non-profit foundation that supports Down syndrome cognitive research. The potential of these treatments to address Down syndrome cognitive dysfunction is tremendous - improving memory, learning and communication – and expanding and enhancing life opportunities for these individuals.

Become one of Parker's Heroes!!!

Race for the Extraordinary!
