Kerry Momnie's Fundraiser:

LuMind RDS Runs the Virginia Wine Country Half Marathon

THE STORY:

This past summer I had the opportunity to travel to the National Down Syndrome Congress Convention, where I met a representative from a Down Syndrome research organization called LuMind.  As I sat in workshops about the latest Down Syndrome research, I realized how crucial this area of study really is, not only for individuals with Down Syndrome, but for individuals living with many diseases and disabilities. Did you know that the key to curing alzheimers, solid tumors, and M.S. (to name a few!) lie within the 21st chromosome that also happens to cause Down Syndrome?  I didn't either! I also learned how incredibly underfunded Down Syndrome research is, considering its implications for millions of people around the world.  That alone left me wondering how I can contribute to this massive cause. 

On June 3, I will be lacing up my running shoes to run 13.1 miles in honor of my incredible first born, Ty.  As an added bonus, I will be doing this in the beautiful wine country of Virginia with my friend Amy, who also happens to be the mother of Ty's best friend Will, another little boy with Down Syndrome.  We will be running to fundraise for LuMind, which I'm certain will directly impact Ty's life down the road. 

Please consider supporting this incredibly worthy cause, in honor of Ty, Will, and all of the hundreds of thousands of others who will be impacted by continued research in this field!  Thank you!
