Run for a Reason 1

Run for a Reason


Dup15q Alliance Run for a Reason program was created to enable parents, friends,  and family of individuals with dup15q syndrome to make the miles count by becoming a fundraiser for the Dup15q Alliance.

Whether you are setting a personal walking goal, running a local 5k, or joining one of our charity partner marathons.


Every mile and every dollar counts toward creating a better tomorrow for families affected by dup15q syndrome.


Any individual who has a Fundraiser page and raises at least $100 will earn a customized Dup15q Alliance performance shirt for your race.


Not much of a runner? Set up a Walk for a Reason or Ride for a Reason fundraiser. What’s YOUR Reason
