World Down Syndrome Day is coming up on Sunday 3/21. As a mom to two children born with Down Syndrome, I understand the importance of early intervention services like speech therapy and physical therapy that help children develop the skills required to excel. I would like to fundraise for Rising Sun School for Special needs children in Pakistan as it provides education & training facilities to enhance the capabilities of the differently abled and rehabilitate them in the society.
Rising Sun is a non profit organization and mainly operates on donations. My goal is to help people with disabilities achieve their potential by helping with various initiatives undertaken by Rising Sun.
Every year I run as part of the Austin marathon as my personal commitment to fundraising for charities that help children. I hope you will join me this year as I run 3.21 miles to fundraise for this organization and help the special needs community.
