BENEFITING: Down Syndrome Research Foundation
ORGANIZER: Down Syndrome Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
I am dragging my sorry bones around another run for charity. Please help me hit my fundraising goal and avoid shame.
The cause is a good one - Down Syndrome Research Foundation. Our family has benefited from their work as have thousands of others.
PS - two of you donated $300 to my last plea and are exempt from this... you know who you are.
Run Hand in Hand with Young People with Down Syndrome
On May 7, 2017, over 15,000 people will push themselves to the limit as they compete in the BMO Vancouver Marathon. As they do, many of them will be making a huge impact in the lives of young people with Down syndrome.
As a National Charity of the BMO Vancouver Marathon, runners are invited to participate on behalf of the Down Syndrome Research Foundation, raising funds to empower individuals with Down syndrome to reach their full potential as contributing members of the community. This initiative is part of the Marathon's RUN4HOPE, and is open to participants in the full marathon, half marathon, marathon relay, 8k or 2.5k run.
