BENEFITING: Research Down Syndrome
ORGANIZER: Research Down Syndrome
EVENT: San Francisco Marathon 2014
I'm running the San Francisco Marathon this year to raise funds for Research Down Syndrome (RDS)! This is a foundation that is changing the course in understanding and treating intellectual disabilities in Down syndrome.
RDS is committed to supporting the identification of the causes of the intellectual impairments associated with Down syndrome and to facilitating the development of pharmacological therapies to improve memory, learning and communication in persons with Down syndrome. Remarkable progress has already been made over a very short time. In fact, three human clinical trials have already begun, less than a decade after the support of private foundations stimulated the progress of Down syndrome cognitive research.
Your support will help translate these research initiatives into a reality. Please support me the RDS Runners team because each step we take and each mile we cross helps RDS fund research that already has made extraordinary progress.
