Grab your walking or running shoes and join DSAOC…

For the second year in a row, DSAOC is a participating charity in the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation’s (PCRF) Cinco de Mayo Half Marathon on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at the Irvine Spectrum Center.

Your donations, pledges and sponsorships toward team ‘Down Syndrome Assoc of OC’ will help raise funds for DSAOC’s Health Care Education & Outreach program, which includes funding support for the CHOC Children’s Down Syndrome Program.  Your registration fees go directly to supporting PCRF’s worthy cause. 

Did you know that on average one in every 95 children with Down syndrome will develop leukemia, compared with a rate of one in every 2,000 in the typical population?  While the vast majority of children with Down syndrome will never develop leukemia, the disease remains one of the major health care concerns for our community.

Support PCRF and DSAOC today by registering to run or walk, or by giving a tax-deductible contribution toward this effort.  Visit DSAOC’s homepage at www.dsaoc.org and click on the link to register/donate.

If you have questions, please contact Kellie Perez at kperez@dsaoc.org or call the DSAOC Center at (714) 540-5794.  Thank you!
