EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
This is a very special cause for me because I am running for my cousin Luke. If you are lucky enough to know my amazing cousin then I don’t even need to tell you all the extraordinary joys he brings to the people around him. For those of you who don’t know Luke (even though he is basically a celebrity in Syracuse, NY) then you don’t know about all the laughs he brings to your life. You don’t know that his smile lights up a room. You don’t know that he is a basement basketball stud, well basketball stud period. You don’t know that the word intimidation doesn’t exist in his world...seriously he would go against LeBron James in one-on-one if he had the chance and shout “OH YEAH BABY” in his face after scoring. Most of all you don’t the amount of love he brings to those who surround him. I can promise you when I say that Luke is that little ‘extra’ something in your life that makes it all worthwhile.
LuMind Research Down Syndrome’s Runners is the national charity running program advancing Down syndrome cognition research.
