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 email@example.com
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.

This Saturday will be the kick off for the Jacksonville Run With Donna training program. Both Galloway and Next Steps training programs will start their programs on Saturday, November 16th.
GALLOWAYMeet at Big Dog on Broadway at 7:20 am. Running starts at 7:30. Training is either for new half marathon runners or a continuation training program for full marathon runners. If you have never completed a half marathon and would like to, you can register for the half training. Due to time constraints, there is not enough time to train for a full marathon if you have not recently completed a half, so anyone who trained in the May – November training for fall races and would like to move up to a full marathon or continue training for another full marathon may do so as your training will continue from where you left off after Soldier. For Galloway questions, contact Shelly Dinkin at firstname.lastname@example.org
Next Steps group will be meeting on Saturday. More details to come. For Next Steps questions contact Carolee Luther at email@example.com
