Thanks for CARING Congress!

Last night, NDSS held our 12th Annual CARING with Congress event on Capitol Hill – which over the last 12 years has raised over $1 million for Down syndrome research and directly supports our NDSS Research Innovation and Discovery Fund. Please check out our wonderful pictures from last evening here! As the leading nonprofit in the United States dedicated to advocating for all people with Down syndrome and their families, both at the federal and state levels of government, we are fortunate to have so many amazing Congressional Champions dedicated to advancing effective policies that make the lives of all individuals with Down syndrome better.

Rep. Dan Benishek
