BENEFITING: LuMind Research Down Syndrome Foundation
ORGANIZER: LuMind Research Down Syndrome Foundation
Hi -- I will be raising money for the Lumind Foundation for the research of Down Syndrome for the NYC Half Marathon on March 20, 2016. My goal is to raise at least $1,000 for this cause. Please use the blue box to the right to donate to support me in raising money for this cause.
The mission of the LuMind Foundation is to stimulate biomedical research that will accelerate the development of treatments to significantly improve cognition, including memory, learning and speech, for individuals with Down syndrome so they:
• participate more successfully in school
• lead more active and independent lives, and
• avoid the early onset of Alzheimer's Disease.
LuMind’s vision is a world in which people with Down syndrome are fully included in academic and social environments and where they can live independently as adults, if they so choose.
