Jo Ann- thank you so much for your donation to the Take Rest Project- it feels really good to be using Mother's Day as a time to put some positive energy out into the world.... And thank you Jo Ann for giving your donation in honor of me- that is so lovely and made me feel really really good. Not sure what you'll be doing on Mother's Day, but you've raised two amazing kids and I hope you get to celebrate motherhood and grand motherhood tomorrow with those you love. THANK YOU AGAIN!

Dear Supporter,

Thank you for your wonderful gift to one of our runners who participated in the 116th Boston Marathon on April 16, 2012 as part of Team MDSC. Ten runners collectively raised over $72,000, which directly impacts all MDSC programs and services available to people with Down syndrome and their families.

Your support enables the MDSC to continue to be there for new and expectant families; educate health care professionals about Down syndrome and how to deliver a diagnosis; provide social and leadership development for teens and young adults with Down syndrome; equip educators with best practices and resources; and create and influence legislation affecting people with Down syndrome on the local and national level. We could not do this important work without people like you.

Thanks again for your kindhearted generosity and believing in our mission.

Warm regards,

Maureen Gallagher, M.S.
Executive Director
