Research Down Syndrome (RDS) is again partnering with the NYC Half Marathon being held in New York City on March 17. RDS is a national 501(c)(3) charity that is a leading provider of grants to support research to develop pharmaceutical therapies to improve memory and learning in persons with Down syndrome. RDS Runners, the charity race program supporting Down syndrome research, expects a team of twenty to participate in the NYC Half Marathon.
A few charity slots remain to register for the race and join the team. As the registration lottery has already occurred, these entries remain the only means by which to register for the race. RDS encourages interested runners to join the RDS team and support Down syndrome research.
