THE STORY:

The Scene: Sonoran Desert, Arizona

Kids: Well, that was a great first training run!
Bob: Whatchyou talkin' bout?
Kids: Training run...you know, getting ready for the SF Half Marathon
Bob: Who's running the SF Half?
Kids: You are, Dad, with mom and us...to raise money for Ds research to assist your great friends, and to celebrate your 60th Birthday

That was back in March. So, yes, since then, we've been training hard to run in the San Francisco Half Marathon!  

Why: Here's the important part. I'm making this training effort and racing the SF Half for all the remarkable people I have met in the last three years. Team Schoen is running for children and adults with Down syndrome, and their parents, relatives, and friends.(You'll see many of their pictures to the left, and I'll be adding more) I'm running because I share with them a belief in the promise of Down syndrome cognitive research...research that will lead to drug therapies that will assist memory and learning in persons with Down syndrome. Two clinical trials to test potential drugs to treat learning difficulties in persons with Ds have already begun. Team Schoen is running because we are alarmed by the heartbreaking intersection of Down syndrome and Alzheimer's disease. Persons with Down syndrome have a 3-5 times greater likelihood to develop Alzheimer's disease, and we are running to support research that has already led to an approved clinical trial to test a vaccine designed to offset Alzheimer's advance in Ds. 
There has been remarkable progress in Ds research, but more support is needed to identify additional therapies and move current research more quickly to clinical trials. Success in this remarkable medical initiative will mean lives with increased educational and occupational opportunities for persons with Down syndrome...and the chance to live more independently. 

Team Schoen thanks you for generously supporting this cause! And if Team Schoen doesn't break some kind of fundraising record, Robert C. Schoen, President, RDS will be mightily disappointed.
