down syndrome fundraiser

Hi all First let me say to everyone involved with the CrossFit Games Qualifiers, from Athletes to Coaches to Supporting Spectators, Way to Represent! I'm so proud to be apart of the CrossFit Community! Some of you may or may not know I have a brother who has Down Syndrome. His name is Matt and he is 23 years old. Having someone in your family with Down Syndrome or any disability requires never ending support, care and understanding. The Down Syndrome Research Foundation is holding their annual fund raising event the Run Up For Down Syndrome on Sunday, June 7, 2009. Its a 5km Run (or walk) around the top of Burnaby Mountain that supports the expansion of current DSRF programs and assists in the development of new programs. I propose we get a Team CrossFit Vancouver together for this important cause! All we need is 5 members to start a team. Registration fee is only $25 and each registrant will receive a Run up for Down Syndrome t-shirt with CrossFit Vancouver printed on it. I think this is a great way spread the CF Community love AND get a nice little run in! All teams must be registered by May 20th; if I get 5 people I will register a CrossFit Vancouver Team then all you have to do is go to http://www.dsrf.org follow the links to the Running Room 5k Team Challenge and sign yourself up! Hope to see you all there! Kyla
