I am running the 2014 Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland this January, as well as the Dumbo Double Dare Challenge in September at Disneyland, for Team Research Down Syndrome, to help fund research for a precious Princess named Madison Elizabeth Evers and all individuals living with Down syndrome. Madison was born on July 24th, 2013, with Down syndrome and needed open heart surgery to repair 2 large holes in her heart. At two months of age, she had this surgery. Madison is improving each day but needs all of our love and prayers.
Research Down Syndrome educates and inspires a caring society to fund biomedical research findings which will translate into safe and effective, approved therapies to treat the cognitive impairment in individuals with Down syndrome of all ages. None of this research would be possible without donations and unfortunately, Down syndrome research is UNDERFUNDED!
Please join me in helping raise awareness and funding for Down syndrome research...scientific studies aimed at developing treatments to improve memory and learning in persons with Down syndrome.
Please donate here to support Research Down Syndrome (RDS), a non-profit foundation that enables Down syndrome cognitive research. The potential of these treatments to address Down syndrome cognitive dysfunction is tremendous-improving memory, learning and communication-and expanding and enhancing life opportunities for these individuals.
Help me with my magical miles for Madison!
Thank you SO much!
