The Rowdy Roo Racers invite you to join us!
Why we are passionate in our efforts to support this cause???
Research Down Syndrome is an organization/group that strongly supports opportunities that make a positive impact towards improving the lives of people with Down Syndrome. Our RDS Runners are racing across the country to support Down Syndrome cognitive research. The research RDS supports will lead to safe and effective therapies to improve learning and memory in persons with Down Syndrome.
RDS will be participating in many events throughout the year to raise funds and these events will not be limited to simply running but to also bring enhanced awareness to all other RDS events this year. So, even if you are not a runner, there’s a place for you on our Team and we would love to have you as part of the RDS family/team!
You can learn more about RDS Runners and the events they are participating in on their RDS Runners blog.
We are very excited about our activities already planned and we are kicking off of the racing season with Crazy Legs Classic in Madison, Wisconsin April 28th and ending in the Twin Cities for the Twin Cities Marathon on October 7th.
Other events that are in the works:
Van Roo Triathlon- Olympic and Sprint distances- Wautoma 6/9/12
Fire Cracker 5 (mile) Columbus 7/4/12
Danskin Triathlon (women only) - Pleasant Prairie, WI 8/26/12
These are just a few to start and very thrilled with much more to come!!!!!!
