It is encouraging that more local associations are adding research support to their program services. Sizable contributions to RDS and Down syndrome cognitive research have been made by Alexander’s Angels of Long Island, Heart of Illinois Down Syndrome Association, Northern New Jersey Down Syndrome Alliance, Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte, Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas, East Texas Down Syndrome Group and Greater Clear Lake Families Exploring Down Syndrome. Thank You!
Most recently, RDS President Bob Schoen received a donation from the Charlotte group, representing funds raised at their Nov. 9, 2013 321 Dash for Down Syndrome 5K Fun Run. The event was so successful, and fun, that DSAGC has planned another run for April 26!
When all associations across the country begin following this lead, national support for Ds research will be fundamentally re-stated, leading to significant increases in funding and even more rapid progress of this remarkable medical initiative.
RDS can assist your organization in making a commitment to support research. Please reach out to RDS at firstname.lastname@example.org . It would be a privilege to meet with your association members and share the exciting progress of Down syndrome cognitive research.
Thank you so much for your continued assistance to the Down syndrome community!
