BENEFITING: Research Down Syndrome
ORGANIZER: Research Down Syndrome
Research for Down Syndrome has made great strides in finding opportunities as well as early interventions for children with Down Syndrome. When I found out it is a charity for the San Francisco Marathon, I chose to run it in honor of my nephew who will be born in July and has been diagnosed with Down syndrome.
Raising money for Research for Down Syndrome is something I chose to do as a way to help my sister and her family. I have run 10 marathons and this will be #11. I feel lucky that I have had the opportunity to run that many marathons. This marathon is not about me; it is about my nephew. Challenging myself to another 26.2 miles is hardly anything compared to the struggles he may endure. Hopefully there will be enough research and new opportunities that his challenges will be minimal.
My fundraising goal is $1,000. If you would kindly give me a donation of your choice, it would be greatly appreciated. If you like, friend me on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/meganmozart. I will keep you updated on my training and you'll be hearing from me the day of the marathon.
Thanks so much for your support!
