BENEFITING: UPS FOR DOWNS NFP

ORGANIZER: UPS FOR DOWNS NFP

EVENT: 2015 Chicago Marathon

EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015

Chris Piskule

THE STORY:

I will be running the 2015 Chicago this year as a charity runner for UPS FOR DOWNS. They inspire community acceptance by sharing with others the presence, potential and abilities of people with Down syndrome.

I had my third child, Lindsey, at the age of 23 with the diagnosis of Down Syndrome.  It opened a new world for me and my family.   I was a new member of a club that had a life-time membership, and a lot of unanswered questions.  It is because of organizations like UPS FOR DOWNS, families who are fortunate enough to be blessed with a child with down syndrome can get the support, education and encouragement they need to have their children thrive. 

Lindsey is now 30 years old and loving life. She loves to dance, read, swim and ride her bike.  Her gold medal collection from her special Olympic events keeps growing.  Nothing will hold her back!  

Please help me in supporting this wonderful organization!

We are endurance athletes with a mission - on 10/11/15, the UPS for DownS Angel Endurance Team will celebrate TEN YEARS as a Bank of America Chicago Marathon charity.  Join us to honor the memory of Katie MacDonald, who paved the way for inclusion and literacy for children and adults with Down syndrome.

Completing a marathon is an amazing accomplishment. Make it more meaningful by supporting the UPS for DownS Marathon Team.

The funds raised will be used to promote literacy among individuals of all ages who have Down syndrome.
