THE STORY:

On March 4, I will be running in the Rock N Roll New Orleans Marathon/ Half Marathon. It will be my first (and possibly my last) half Marathon, and I couldn’t think of a better way to run it.  I will be running in honor of Jarrett Plank and on behalf of a foundation called Research Down Syndrome (RDS).   I have followed Jarrett through his mother’s facebook page and his dad’s blog.  Jarrett was born with Down Syndrome, and he has had to endure numerous surgeries and hospitalizations in his one short year of life.  Jarrett has more courage and strength in his little finger than I have in my whole body and a smile that will melt your heart. He was blessed with such a wonderful family who has touched my heart more than they will ever know.  Some of us, including myself, take for granted how blessed we are to have children who do not require extra needs.  We plan their futures….college, marriage, jobs, children. We often don’t think about the fact that these same futures may not be possible for some children.  Because of the work done by Research Down Syndrome, individuals like my friend Jarrett, may have a future filled with the same opportunities that all children should be able to have.  RDS 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.

 On March 4, with Jarrett’s courage and my feet, we will run 13.1 miles to help RDS fund research that has already made extraordinary progress. Please consider making a donation to RDS.
