Research Down Syndrome is the foundation that is changing the course in understanding and treating intellectual disabilities in Down syndrome.
RDS is committed to supporting the identification of the causes of the intellectual impairments associated with Down syndrome and to facilitating the development of pharmacological therapies to improve memory, learning and communication in persons with Down syndrome. Remarkable progress has already been made over a very short time. In fact, three human clinical trials have already begun, less than a decade after the support of private foundations stimulated the progress of Down syndrome cognitive research.
Your support will help translate these research initiatives into a reality. Please join with the RDS Runners team as their miles help RDS fund research that already has made extraordinary progress.
For the privilege of receiving an entry into this prestigious event, RDS Runners are being asked to raise $500 to support Down syndrome cognitive research. You can view the commitment and charity waiver form here and can send the completed waiver form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's Race for the Extraordinary!
