Inland Moms events: 5K/10K Fun Run For Down Syndrome Awareness

Inland Moms had a great time running the Inland Empire Down Syndrome 5k/10k. We ran for our friends Eliana & Makailia and their families. During the walk to tweeted and shared facebook updates to raise awareness about Down Syndrome, the most commonly occurring genetic condition worldwide.

Down Syndrome crosses all race, nationality, religion, ages and social economic status lines. In the United States, 1 in every 691 babies are born w/ Down Syndrome, about 6000 births per year.

Most children with Down Syndrome have mild to moderate cognitive impairment. Children with Down Syndrome are not very different from a typical child, in fact they are more alike than different.
