THE STORY:

Raise money for Down syndrome research and win fabulous prizes!

plus15 is launching a fundraising challenge—we’re looking to raise $15,000 to fund important Down syndrome cognition research, and we need your help. Over the next month we’re asking people to join our plus15 fundraising project team here on Crowdrise (joining is super easy and only takes a few seconds).   The more you raise, the more opportunities you have to win fabulous prizes!  Here’s the scoop:

Our Fundraising Goal: $20,000

Contest dates: now-May 21, 2011

Prizes:You must raise at least $1500 to qualify to win the top three prizes

Top fundraiser: iPad

Second highest fundraiser: Wii

Next three top fundraisers: a gift certificate for $50 to Shutterfly

What is plus15?

plus15 is the campaign to improve learning, memory and speech for people with Down syndrome. plus15 will make it possible for people with Down syndrome to live more independent lives--with more opportunities than ever before.

The life expectancy of someone living with Down syndrome has more than doubled over the past decade. Unfortunately, their cognitive abilities have not improved at a similar pace. Research scientists are very close to finding ways to improve the learning, memory and speech of people living with Down syndrome, but we need your help!

Federal funding for Down syndrome research is only $55 per person. That's about 95% less on average than what the government spends on research for similar disabilities (check out the chart to the left to see the comparison). 

When you give to the plus15 campaign, 100% of your money will do directly to funding cognitive research at major research centers around the country, including Johns Hopkins Medical Center, Stanford University, University of San Diego and University of Arizona.

plus15 is an initative of the Down Syndrome Research and Treatment Foundation.
