BENEFITING: Research Down Syndrome

EVENT DATE: Sep 01, 2013

Lara Font

THE STORY:

Going home....yes, you heard that right..going home! Mike and I are finishing up our commitment to run Coast to Coast for Research Down Syndrome to fund research for Parker and all individuals living with Down syndrome. Why "going home?" you ask, well, Lara spent her teen years in Southern California, and Mike was born in CA!So, this is like going home in several ways. This will be the West Coast Disney race and  for those of you that know how much we love ALL THINGS DISNEY it is the perfect place! Don't worry, the competitor still looms large in Mike and Lara. Lara is trying to better her 1:42 finish and Mike is giving her a run for her money. She finished 8th in her age group last race, she's secretly trying to hit the top 5!

Important things are happening NOW in Down syndrome research because of organizations like Research Down Syndrome (RDS). There are currently 2 drugs in clinical trials, and a 3rd clinical trial was just approved in July. None of this research would be possible without donations and unfortunately Down syndrome research is UNDERFUNDED!

Join us in our efforts to 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, and form your own team to Run Research Down Syndrome (RDS), a non-profit foundation that supports 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.

Become one of Parker's Heroes!!!

Race for the Extraordinary!
