Research Down Syndrome's Fundraiser:

RDS August 8,500 Mile Challenge

Research Down Syndrome's Photo


Starting August 1st, Research Down Syndrome is challenging the RDS Runners team as a group to complete 8,500 miles! You can run, walk, bike, hike...use a treadmill, stairmaster, stationary bike, elliptical...inside, outside...whatever it doesn't matter. The RDS Runners team consists of over 130 members and we know this can be done. Anyone can join the team to take part of this challenge. Just keep track of your mileage daily or weekly and post on social media with ‪#‎RDSAug8500challenge. We promise to keep track and keep us honest. Who accepts this challenge?!?

Research Down Syndrome, a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation, supports scientific studies directed towards understanding the sources of cognitive difficulties in persons with Down syndrome. RDS believes in the promise of a future where therapies will be available that will help improve memory, learning and communication in persons with Down syndrome. This will lead to increased life opportunities in education, employment, social interactions….perhaps a future where persons with Down syndrome might be able to live independently. Please join with the RDS Runners as their miles help RDS fund research that already has made extraordinary progress.
