BENEFITING: Research Down Syndrome
ORGANIZER: Research Down Syndrome
I am running in the Chicago Marathon to raise funds for down syndrome research. My niece, Bridget, has down syndrome. She has been an inspiration to us all throughout the last 26 years. Some of the research that is critical for the quality of life includes:1)early onset Alzheimers disease for people with down syndrome, 2)heart defects (Bridget had surgery at the age of 10 months, when she weighed only 9 lbs!), 3) cognitive disabilities, 4) joint issues. I hope you'll help me with my fundraising efforts.
