NYC Marathon Update

Two weeks ago, we all learned about the devastation and tragedy caused by Hurricane Sandy.

It pales to this circumstance of course, but, our 7 RDS Runners in the NYC Marathon, who had been training and fundraising for months, lost the chance to compete in this event when the city made the correct decision to cancel the race. Our deepest thanks go to Lauren, Ron, Marisa, Jeff, Chris, Michelle, and Liz for all their efforts. Together, they raised over $22,000 to support RDS and Down syndrome cognitive research. Congrats to Marisa who ran in a “substitute” marathon on Sunday. Ron and Lauren are headed to Dallas to compete. We will share more news about NYC marathon plans as they become available. Thank you again Team.
