THE STORY:

I'm running the San Francisco Marathon on July 31, 2016 in honor of my nephew Richie. He will turn 4 on July 2 and is just the happiest little toddler. Richie was born with Down syndrome. When I found out, I knew if I wanted to help I could do it through running races as a charity runner. I have completed 13 marathons and many other distances leading up to the long haul of 26.2 miles. Marathon #14 will commence in the wee hours of July 31 and I will have raised money for LuMind Research Down Syndrome.

I discovered this charity in 2012 just a few months before Richie was born. I raised money that year and ran the SF Marathon. At the finish line, someone saw my bib and realized I was running for a newborn baby. He gave me an extra medal for him. Richie was in the hospital at the time and looked pretty cool with a marathon medal hanging over his crib. He lives in Maryland and I live in California. I flew out there to give him his medal and he was relased from the hospital a few days later. It was his good luck charm! The paragraph below summarizes the mission behind this charity. My family and I are hopeful that through enough research Richie will live a very long healthy life.

LuMind Research Down Syndrome’s Runners is the national charity running program advancing Down syndrome cognition research. Your support of LuMind RDS Runners will help translate research into drug therapies to significantly improve cognition, including memory, learning, and speech in people with Down syndrome.
