On Saturday, June 4, 2016 I'll be running for the third annual Race4Respect 5K to help raise awareness of Down syndrome. We're making great strides in society for inclusion- just this year we've seen fashion embrace Madeline Stuart who's modeling has received world wide attention. A fashion magazine has even gone so far as to have her modeling wedding dresses! It's this type of exposure that helps society see people with Down syndrome as people first, capable of so much more than many have believed possible, but we're far from where we need to go, and that's why I'm running. Thank for your support! Carolyn Proud mom to Jessie 10yrs old DS.
