Down Syndrome Research

In my quest to find out more about the organizations who are leading the nation in Down syndrome research, I was excited to find out that one of the top groups will be the beneficiary of the funds raised from a golf tournament right here in Nebraska, next month. If any of you are golfers and want to give to a great cause, please check out the upcoming Hayes Mechanical Golf outing to benefit the LuMind Foundation for Down Syndrome Research. Currently, researchers have a better understanding about the connection between Down syndrome and Alzheimer's than ever before and they are in the process of developing a drug to prevent Alzheimer's in the general population. That same drug may be able to increase cognition in individuals with Down syndrome. This is an exciting time for Down syndrome research. Can you help out? Please share this link with all your golfer friends and any company that might like to sponsor a team.
