BENEFITING: Research Down Syndrome
EVENT DATE: Nov 16, 2013
RDS Runners’ 'Team Flynn' was one of our first teams running in support of Down syndrome cognitive research. This team is from the Washington, DC area. The inspiration for this team was Flynn Fry.
A team of RDS Runners from New Jersey are running in the Philadelphia Marathon Weekend 8K race, and they asked if they could run in his loving memory. We said, "Of Course!". What a kind gesture.They will be:
“Running for Flynn”
Research Down Syndrome is the 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, a human clinical trial has 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 join with the RDS Runners as their miles help RDS fund research that already has made extraordinary progress.
