BENEFITING: UPS FOR DOWNS NFP
ORGANIZER: UPS FOR DOWNS NFP
EVENT: 2015 Chicago Marathon
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
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!
