With the motivation of knowing that hundreds of orphans with Down syndrome were waiting for a family to find them, Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome was launched. Our purpose is to create awareness for these special children and raise funding that will go towards making what seemed like a distant dream of having a family of their own become a reality, one child at a time.
The seed for RODS Racing was planted in 2007 when founder Brady Murray had his newborn son placed in his arms. The doctors told him that his son has Down syndrome. What seemed like an overwhelming challenge has evolved into one of Brady’s biggest blessings. Brady’s son Nash has been the inspiration behind the creation of RODS Racing. The unconditional love that Nash shows to all and the desire to help these precious children is truly the driving force behind RODS Racing.
The athletes of RODS Racing consists of individuals from all different backgrounds. Whether it’s a 5k, Marathon, Sprint Triathlon or a full Ironman, we race for the cause of helping these children find a home.
Together with the organization Reece’s Rainbow, hundreds of children have been saved, but there are many more still in need of an adoptive family.
