Lucas is 10 years old and running in his second Cooper River Bridge Run 10K in Charleston, SC. He has 2 goals for this race: 1) to beat his time from last year and finish with a sub-50min, and 2) To raise money for LuMind Research Down Syndrome. Lumind RDS provides grants for researchers developing potential treatments to improve cognition, memory, and speech and language which can increase independence for individuals with Down syndrome. Lucas is raising money for LuMind in honor of his sister, Kayla, who has Down syndrome.
