Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome are looking for people to join us on the start line in January 9-11, 2015 at Disney’s Marathon Weekend. We have 3 spots left for the marathon and 9 for Goofy’s Challenge (run a half marathon on Saturday and full marathon on Sunday). This would be a fun trip for any interested team members.
We provide race kit, registration, 1-2 nights of accommodation (depending on the event) and a fantastic team of support in exchange for fundraising for RODS. All the info can be seen here:
If anyone is interested, please contact Mollie Millington firstname.lastname@example.org
With the motivation of knowing that hundreds of orphans with Down syndrome were waiting for a family to find them, Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome was launched. Our purpose is to create awareness for these special children and raise funding that will go towards making what seemed like a distant dream of having a family of their own become a reality, one child at a time.
We have over one hundred team members across America, Canada, and Europe. Whether it is a 5K, marathon, sprint triathlon, or a full Ironman, we race for the cause of helping these children find a home.
The seed for RODS Racing was planted in 2007 when founder Brady Murray had his newborn son placed in his arms. The doctors told him that his son has Down syndrome. What seemed like an overwhelming challenge has evolved into one of Brady’s biggest blessings. Brady’s son Nash has been the inspiration behind the creation of RODS Racing. The unconditional love that Nash shows to all and the desire to help these precious children is truly the driving force behind RODS Racing.
