This is part of a solidarity movement with Siobhan, who is racing 100 miles through the Rocky Mountains to raise money for Down syndrome research. I can't do that. But I CAN still give a little something extra.
Here's the idea:
I'm running in solidarity with Siobhan this summer and at least once a week I'll add a little something extra to my running outfit. There may be themes. Pictures (likely of the embarrassing variety) will be posted. Good times will be had by all.
Anyone is welcome to join!
This idea was sparked because Down syndrome is caused by the presence of extra material of the 21st chromosome. Let's put that extra to work for us! There have been great strides in research designed to improve learning, memory, and cognition, but Down syndrome cognitive research remains seriously underfunded.
If you'd like more info about Siobhan or Down syndrome research, click the Run with Siobhan banner at the top. It'll direct you to the video, the Research Down Syndrome company website and social media, and a place to buy t-shirts and hats. All proceeds go to funding cognitive Down syndrome research.
