In less than one week, RDS Runner Richard Huckaby will be running in the Gasparilla Half Marathon in Tampa. Read his beautiful message on his fundraising page. His inspiration is his daugther Bella:
Richard, his family, friends and co-workers are closing in on $5,000 for RDS and DS cognitive research.
Thank you Richard. Have a great race this weekend…
Have Fun…Stay Safe…Be Strong

Who’s planning on running the 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon? Do you have friends or family interested in running in one of America’s great events? RDS Runners is again one of the select charity partners with entries into this high demand race.
Please pass this news on to your runner friends. With your help, RDS Runners will be spreading awareness of the promise of Down syndrome cognitive research, as they run in a field of 40,000 runners in view of millions of cheering spectators. Let’s do it! Let’s Race for the Extraordinary and raise many thousands of dollars to support this remarkable research initiative!
Happy Freezing Wednesday everyone!
Four RDS Runners in January and February:
Kathy Rogers in Charleston, Christopher Root in Houston, Betty Jones at Disneyland and Richard Huckaby(upcoming Feb. 23 race in Tampa) set fundraising goals that totaled $6,000. Well, the amount raised is at $8,870 and counting. Thank You!
Maybe we need to have a little discussion about goal setting, RDS says smilingly!

The RDS Runners competitive season is coming to a close. We still need to recognize a few more folks who recently Raced for the Extraordinary.
Congrats, Debbie Drew, for representing RDS Runners in the San Antonio Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon. Our thanks to you and your donors for raising over $2500 for Ds research helping Noah and so many more.
Megan Mozart, for the second year, you’ve competed as an RDS Runner in support of all persons with Down syndrome, especially nephew Richie. You blew away your $1K goal, and then exceeded your $3210(get it?) stretch goal. Way to go! Thanks for raising Ds research dollars in the Zombie Runner Marathon near San Jose, CA.
We are working on plans and a schedule for 2014. Help us take RDS Runners to the next level. We need your support. Please share RDS Runners related posts, send ideas/questions to email@example.com, and continue to advocate for RDS Runners and the benefits of exercise on cognition.

For a second year, a group of RDS Runners has gotten together to run in honor of Flynn Fry. The team, led by Lisa Arnoa, fund raised for RDS and Ds research. They are so touched by Flynn, and Flynn continues to serve as an inspiration to assist all persons with Down syndrome with research that will lead to enhanced life opportunities. Team members were Lisa Arnoa, Matt and Jess MacDougall, Heather Anthony, Colleen Morrisroe, Maureen Morrisroe, Bridgid Eileen and Melissa Guarino.
Thank you team for Running for Flynn.
