THE STORY:

Christine and Greg are lacing up their running shoes for their next race, The Holualoa Tucson Half marathon Dec. 10th http://tucsonmarathon.com/?marathon=half-marathon-2016, to benefit their son Gregory who has Down Syndrome. It is their primary belief that DS cognition research will pave the way in developing therapeutic medicines to improve the lives ALL people that are afflicted with DS. It is a known FACT that ALL people with DS struggle with intellectual disabilities to some degree and by the time they reach adulthood, Alzheimer's disease is wrecking havoc on their brains.  We need cognitive medicines to treat DS, the time is NOW to join in and help this most needed cause. DS research is drastically underfunded by the NIH, so much is left to organizations like Lumind to fill the gap where our government has failed us. It is about time to let all know that we are serious: DS Cognition research is WAY UNDERFUNDED and we want to fight for our son so he can receive the needed medications to help him have a life with less struggles and to become "TRULY" INDEPENDENT!! He won't attain this goal unless we get more funding for DS Cognition research!! Please help us by donating what ever you can, no donation is too small!! Thank you for your support!! Sweet Little Gregory is so worth it!!
