THE STORY:

On July 31st, 2016, my son Eric O'Dea, will be participating in the San Francisco Marathon as a member of the LuMind Research Down Syndrome's Runners. LuMind Research Down Syndrome's Runners is a national charity running program advancing Down syndrome cognition research. Eric, along with Kate Dochelli will be running the San Francisco Marathon 5k race. Kate is the Runners and Special Event Coordinator for LuMind RDS and is flying in from Washington D.C. just to run the race with Eric because he is LuMind RDS first self advocate runner. Eric discovered the fun of 5k races about 3 years ago. Eric finally conquered his weight issues, lost 60 pounds, at age 22, enrolled in Fitbuddies, a Crossfit training program, at age 25, and starting participating in 5k races at age 27. This 5k race will be Eric's 7th 5k for the year and 25th 5k race overall. Eric is not running for LuMind RDS because he has Down syndrome. Eric is running to help raise money for Down syndrome cognition research; so won't you please help Eric raise money for Down syndrome cognition research by donating to LuMind RDS Runner's on behalf of Eric. If you wish to donate by check please reference Eric O'Dea in the memo line and mail to: LuMind Research Down Syndrome Foundation 225 Cedar Hill Street Suite 200 Marlborough, MA 01752 You can learn more about LuMind RDS and LuMind RDS Runner's by following the links below. https://www.lumindrds.org/ https://www.lumindrds.org/get-involved/run-for-down-syndrome/ Thank You
