Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome


Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome Via Brady Murray...

"My family and I have loved being able to work on behalf of the children on Reece's Rainbow
 since finding this great organization.  It's for this reason that I had a hard time sleeping 
because of the excitement after hearing about this announcement!

Two months ago, Ironman announced a contest called Kona Inspired.  How it works is they 
have given the general public an opportunity to submit a 90 second video based around the 
theme, "Anything is Possible".  Winners receive a spot to race in the Ironman World 
Championship in October, but most importantly, they will race as a media athlete and have
 the opportunity to share their story on NBC's nationally televised broadcast of the championship
 this year!  THIS COULD BE OUR OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THESE PRECIOUS CHILDREN'S STORY
 WITH THE WORLD!!!

After reading Ironman's press release we immediately went to work.  This is an opportunity 
to help these children in a way that I never imagined possible!  The video came together with 
the help of many wonderful people and we submitted it.  105 videos were submitted.  After
 over a month long preliminary public voting, we just received word that we are one of
 the top 15 videos and will compete in the final round of voting June 4 - June 18!!!"

Please take a moment to WATCHVOTE, and SHARE our video as much as possible throughout 
the day from your home computer, work computer, laptop, phone, etc!  We need to be in the 
top 2 videos at the end of the day on June 18.  http://rodsracing.org/

This father is doing something amazing! He is making a difference! Let's work together and
 make is dream for these precious children come true. Here are just a few of the precious 
children that would be helped...

Marcus Monday!

Meet Marcus...

He is a handsome 9 year old boy living in an orphanage all the way across the world. He was born with Spina Bifida and is unable to walk.
He is, literally, just sitting and waiting.

He is waiting for someone to look past his disability. Waiting for a family to see that sweet face and say "He is our son!"

He is one of many children that a RR mommy met when picking up her daughter and for some reason he is the only one left who hasn't had a family commit to bring him home. Honestly, it blows my mind, that he wasn't the first child to find a family. With those big brown puppy dog eyes, and sweet little lips, how could you not fall in love!

It is said that he is smart, friendly, and communicative. He sounds like a wonderful little guy, doesn't he?


Do you have room in your home for that dimpled smile? Do you have room in your heart for a son?

We can't let him be left behind!
