BENEFITING: LuMind Research Down Syndrome Foundation
ORGANIZER: LuMind Research Down Syndrome Foundation
EVENT DATE: Mar 12, 2016
So this is my last full marathon (for a while, anyway)- too busy being a mommy to my sweet daughter Julia and a professor at the College of Charleston (and a daughter, friend--we all play so many roles, don't we?). I want Jules to play as many roles as she can when she grows up, and to do so, she needs the support of DS cognition research. Just since she was born, she has benefitted from treadmill therapy (she walked earlier than most toddlers with DS), a variety of applications and videos, and, most recently, music therapy. I want her to have every possible tool in her toolbelt so that she can maximize the smart, kind, loving person she is! Won't you help make this a possibility?
I know I've asked you for money in the past, but training for 26.2 miles is HARD, like really hard, and I'm doing it alongside parenting Julia and writing a book because I believe in this goal. So if you can only give $5, it shows me that you believe, too! Let's change the lives of kids with Down Syndrome!! Rock on!!
