THE STORY:

Gregory's two biggest WARRIORS, Greg and Christine (his Dad and Mom), are gearing up to run their first half marathon. This Disney Wine and Dine race in Orlando, FL will help raise funds for Down Syndrome Cognition Research. They truly believe that DS Cognition Research is the key to helping Gregory obtain the bright future that he so deserves.  Because DS research is SO UNDERFUNDED, the time is NOW to step up and support this important cause. Greg and Christine's goals are to raise funds and raise awareness of this worthy cause!!


Great advances have been made and more are just around the corner because of the support of organizations like Research DS (RDS) and all of their heroes and warriors!! Just 3 years ago, the first time ever in the history of DS, a drug previously found to improve learning in lab, went to human clinical trial. This drug made by Roche Laboratories restores neurotransmission  is now in the 3rd year of trials. Now, another pharamceutical company from Australia, Balance Therapeutics,has started a clinical trial with a medicine to improve brain function. Elan Pharmaceuticals is also studying a drug in DS human trials that is used to break up beta amyloid, the main culprit that causes Alzheimers disease. Unfortunately all people with DS will develop AD pathology.

In summary: Three Drugs now in Down Syndrome Human Clinical Trials!!! No, DS is not too complex of a disorder to treat…....it can be done…..We need your support!!

Please donate here to help us in building a brigher cognitive future for Little G and all the other amazing people with DS.

Race for the Extraordinary !!
