The program in only its second full year has already raised over a quarter of a million dollars for cognitive research being conducted at institutions like Johns Hopkins, Stanford and UCSD, and it is growing. Interest and participation across the country is helping RDS re-state public support for research that has the potential to develop therapies that will assist memory and learning in persons with Ds, and perhaps offset the increased likelihood of Alzheimer’s disease.

RDS runners has some teams for specific marathons, but people (like me) can elect to run a marathon--or half, in this case--and fundraise through crowdrise.com. I would like to invite anyone else in DSAL to do this with me for the Charleston whole or half! It's easy. See http://www.researchds.org/rds-runners/. You can make your own fundraising page and run (it would be fun to train together!) or contribute to mine: http://www.crowdrise.com/FoolsforJules/fundraiser/kathyrogers1.
Please feel free to email me at email@example.com with any questions, or if you'd like to run together!!
