The first half of 2013 has just flown by, and the foundation is privileged by all of the RDS Runners who participated in races during the first six months of the year, raising over $65,000 for Ds cognitive research.
To support Research Down Syndrome’s mission of funding research to improve memory, learning and communication in persons with Down syndrome, RDS Runners have participated this year in races across the country:
- Walt Disney World Marathon
- NYC Half Marathon
- Texas Marathon in Dallas
- Glass City Marathon in Toledo
- Fun runs in Montclair, NJ, and Boulder, CO
- San Fracisco Marathon Weekend
- Shorter races in the Midwest.
The RDS Runners team was a top fundraiser in the NYC Half Marathon, Texas Marathon, and San Francisco Marathon.
The program is seeing continued growth in 2013, and we’re excited to keep that momentum going heading into the summer and fall months.
The RDS Runners team is an official charity in numerous upcoming events.
Here is a quick list of races where RDS is still accepting runner registrations for:
- Air Force Marathon – September 21
- Twin Cities Marathon – October 6
- Marine Corps Marathon – October 27
- ING NYC Marathon – November 3
You can view a complete schedule of RDS Runners upcoming races on our website.
We’re still looking for more runners to join our teams and run for Down syndrome research. For more information about RDS Runners and any races we participate in contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As RDS Runners say:
"Any Race… Any Place… Any Date."
