By joining LuMind RDS Runners and running for Down syndrome, you are joining a vibrant community of runners who are friends and family of a loved one with Down syndrome – or just enjoy running for a great cause!


But it doesn’t end there – here are a few other reasons why YOU should run with us…

Here are some of the many perks of becoming a LuMind RDS Runner:

Sense of community. As a LuMind RDS Runner, you’ll join a vibrant group of individuals who are “actively” supporting vital Down syndrome research. Connect with us on our LuMind RDS Facebook group and gain access to a strong community of dedicated runners who serve to motivate and inspire one another. You’ll also be invited to attend a pre-race pasta party gathering for all of the runners participating in the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and their families.

Online Fundraising and Communication Tools. With LuMind RDS Runners, you’ll receive your own personal fundraising page that you can customize and share. Donors can show their support by making a gift online, or by mailing us a check.

Access to Training Tips. You’ll be instantly signed up to receive our monthly eNewsletter and you’ll be added to our Chicago Marathon team e-mail communications. Look out for frequent training tips!

Supportive Staff. A loyal LuMind RDS Runner herself, staff member Kate Dochelli is committed to helping you achieve all of your training and fundraising goals. She is a certified running coach through the RRCA, and would be happy to develop a training plan with you. Please don’t hesitate to contact her with questions or to brainstorm ideas!

Make a difference. Together, we can push the needle on Down syndrome research. By joining LuMind RDS Runners, your fundraising efforts will go directly to support results-driven research to improve cognition in persons with Down syndrome.

Team Swag. Because there’s nothing like cool gear to make mile 12 seem just a little less impossible.
