I am running the Naperville Marathon on November 10th to raise money for UPS for DownS. When I started running marathons, I made a commitment to run every other one for a charity. In 2010, I ran for Golden Apple. Now in 2013, I am running for UPS for DownS (United Parent Support for Down Syndrome).
As most of you know, I have a passion for working with and helping individuals with disabilities. (I am almost done with my Master's in Special Education!) I have chosen to run for UPS for DownS, as it is a local group (based out of Schaumburg, IL) that specifically supports parents, families, and others who love and care about someone with Down Syndrome. This non-profit organization encourages the community to understand and accept the abilities of people with Down Syndrome.
Please help me in raising money for this great organization! For more information about UPS for DownS, please visit: http://www.upsfordowns.org/home.aspx.
