RDS will provide our runners a fundraiser page, tips on training, an RDS Runners shirt, and most importantly, the satisfaction in knowing that their miles are being run to support scientific studies that will enhance educational, occupational and social opportunities for adults and children with Down syndrome.
This program is helping re-state public support for Down syndrome research... research that is changing the course in understanding and treating intellectual disabilities in Down syndrome.
