Running for Team NDSS means the world to me! My son is my inspiration to run, he gives purpose to my miles like no one else can. It feels amazing to know that I am helping to spread awareness and advocate for not only my son, but for all individuals with down syndrome. My journey with Team NDSS has only just begun and I have already seen the impact this is making on my own self, my family, and those around us.
