It is not unusual for people with Down syndrome to receive support from and within the community - here is a young woman who is using her particular talents and interests to demonstrate that support is a two-way street.
Lucy is a keen sportswoman with Down syndrome For the second time, she is competing in an event that most of us will never do ... and she has issued an invitation to join her, either by running, swimming and cycling beside her, or by supporting her fund-raising effort for breast cancer, along with other sportswomen.
8th October 2011
Sydney Olympic Park
A fund-raiser for breast cancer. Join Lucy’s Team in the all-female triathlon.
If Lucy, who has Down Syndrome, and her mum, who is over-55, can do it, SO CAN YOU!
We do the Short Triathlon, which entails:
3km bike ride (no hills!)
1km run (or walk if you prefer).
The start is by waves so there are always ladies ahead of you and others behind you…..there are all shapes, sizes and ages, it is as challenging as you want it to be!
Join Lucy’s team, enrol on-line www.triathlonpink.com.au ... and/or raise funds by giving details of the team web-page to your friends so they can sponsor you www.everydayhero.com.au/lucys_team
