ORGANIZER: Research Down Syndrome
EVENT: NYC Half 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
Every year I come up with several New Year's resolutions. This year was to be more charitable and pay forward the good fortunes that I have been blessed with--good health, wonderful friends and a great boyfiend/family. It was right around New Year's when a friend/colleague asked me to run NYC 1/2 for RDS. Wow, I can do what I love (running) while helping further the research in Down Syndrome--A win/win situation. As an educator of student with special needs, I see the difficulties that individuals with disabiliteis and their families are faced with each day. It is not easy, but their love and support is unconditional. I ask you to join me in supporting the research that will lead to increased life opportunities in education, employment, social interactions and perhaps a future where persons with Down syndrome might be able to live independently.
Your support is greatly appreciated!
