The sun was bright at New York’s Asphalt Green — but no brighter than the smiles on everyone who joined us for this year’s Romp for Research! 2013 marked the Romp’s eighth anniversary, and the joy was infectious as families came together to celebrate the accomplishments and the potential of our loved ones with Ds. With music, sports, games, food, and entertainment, the Romp gave us all a day to remember as it gave research a phenomenal boost: this year’s Romp raised over $175,000 to support cognition research. And if that weren’t enough to make us feel like dancing, this breezy look at the Romp certainly would:
We thank all the volunteers who keep the fun coming each year at the Romp, and who sustain DSRTF’s efforts through their time and their considerable talents, notably Anthony Providenti, Mary Costello, and Stephen Lazare, founding members of our Romp committee. And we loved meeting every one of you who came out that day to play. A tip of the rainbow clown wig to you all — see you at next year’s Romp!
