THE STORY:

Greetings friends!

Given that I am regularly told I look like a duck when I run, my decision to register for the 2011 Chicago Marathon may seem curious at best. However, I am certain that once you hear about the incredible work of Research Down syndrome, the charity I am running for this October, my decision will make perfect sense. So, good comrades, read on---

Founded by Notre Dame alums, RDS supports research to understand and treat the learning challenges faced by individuals with Down syndrome. At present, RDS is funding research at multiple leading research institutions, including Stanford, Johns Hopkins, and the University of California, San Diego. Less than a decade ago, there was virtually no such research in this field; however, thanks to the work of RDS, research has already progressed to the point of clinical trials. All of this work, will make a difference not only for the 400,000 individuals with Down syndrome in the United States and the millions of individuals with Down syndrome globally, but will also provide key insights into Alzheimer’s disease. While a leading supporter of Down syndrome cognitive research, RDS is small so every contribution is key.


If any of this sparks your interest and you would like to get involved in RDS, or you have a query about Down syndrome Cognitive Research, I would love to discuss it further with anyone. Otherwise, please consider making a small donation to help me reach (and perhaps even surpass) my goal of $ 1,000. It will make me smile endlessly.
 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! 


Sparkles and Sunshine,
Catherine
