Hey Teams: Thanks for all yo…
Hey Teams:
Thanks for all your efforts in training and fundraising, completed or yet to come. We are honored and so grateful that you have joined the RDS Runners Teams in these races. Of course, some of you, and I won't mention names, ;) need to pick up the pace, or get started all together. Use emails, tweets, Facebook posts... let all your friends know about the event and the importance of supporting Down syndrome research that will lead to improved memory, learning and communication in persons with Down syndrome.

I was in Washington, DC the other day at a Down Syndrome Research Consortium meeting sponsored by the NIH.

Never have I seen such enthusiastic support for research like RDS is funding - Research that will lead to drug therapies that will improve memory and learning in persons with Down syndrome. Also, research that is aimed at understanding the connection between Down syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease, and developing treatments for this as well. Spread the word, that with your friends' help, RDS Runners and Research Down Syndrome are changing the course in understanding and treating the intellectual disabilities in Down syndrome.

I am off to San Francisco on Friday, July 27 to meet with our RDS Runners team competing this Sunday in the Wipro San Francisco marathon. RDS Runners team dinner is Friday night.

I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible at future events if I can make them. More details will follow.

You all are so fantastic to be giving as you do! RDS greatly appreciates your efforts.

All the best. Continued good luck with your training.

I am proud that you: RACE FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY!

Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

LuMind Research Down Syndrome's RDS Runners is the national charity running program advancing Down syndrome cognition research.

The Foundation is the worldwide leader in supporting Down syndrome cognition research. Biomedical research is aimed at developing treatments to significantly improve cognition, including memory, learning and speech, for individuals with Down syndrome. This enables them to participate more successfully in school and lead more active and independent lives. Treatments to avoid the early onset of Alzheimer's disease in persons with Down syndrome are also being explored.

Remarkable progress has already been made over a very short time. In fact, four 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 of our RDS Runners will help translate these research initiatives into a reality.

Let’s Race for the Extraordinary!
