Meet Kim Torres, earlier this year Kim organized a team of runners for our 1st time running in the Austin Half Marathon.  Kim was able to recruit 17 runners for that race and they raised over $3,000!  Read below as Kim tells us why she loves to volunteer and run for LuMind RDS.  Maybe her story will inspire you to get a team together for one of our upcoming races!

  1. How was your experience running for LuMind RDS?
     My husband and I have loved every race we have run for LRDS. The experience is so rewarding!
  2. What motivates you to carve time out of your busy schedule to Run with us?
    I tell people all the time that I run because I  can run. Our son was born with Ds, something that causes him to work extra hard at every single step of his life every day. I, on the other hand, was born completely capable of running my life, literally and figuratively so I chose to keep putting on step in front of another for a super great cause.
  3. What would you say to someone who is on the fence about running with LuMind RDS? Do it!
    The reward far surpasses the challenge.

 

Thanks Kim for all you do for LuMind RDS!  Austin Marathon Post Race
