About This Activity

Our life changed forever when our fourth son, Michael, was born with Trisomy 21, commonly known as Down Syndrome. Our lack of knowledge about Down Syndrome led to fear which disappeared the more we learned that Michael is just like any typical child.  We established “Michael's Run for Trisomy 21” to raise awareness and knowledge about Down Syndrome.  All proceeds from the race are donated to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Trisomy 21 program (http://www.chop.edu/lefts-programs/trisomy-21-program#.V1h3JNwwjIU).
