Illuminating Cognition Research “With Glow Sticks and Energy”

We recently received a message from Katie Cloutier, a junior at Black River High School in Ludlow, Vermont. Katie (on the right in the photo) held a fun-run fundraising event to support LuMind Foundation and raised almost $600 to support cognition development research. Katie, who is a distance runner, has a friend with Down syndrome and was inspired to create an event that honored her friend and her love of running.

“I chose to donate to your foundation because a close friend of mine has Down Syndrome. In my leisure time I enjoy running and have been a member of my school’s cross-country running team, so the event that I organized incorporated each of these interests, with the benefit of raising funds for beneficial research!” she explained. “I decided to host a Glow-in-the-Dark 5K run/walk on May 10th. Members of the community and people from the surrounding area came to enjoy a night run, and we lit up the village with glow sticks and energy!”

Thank you, Katie – you make us glow with happiness!
