It motivates me every time I meet one of the children with Down Syndrome that we helped find a loving home.

Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome inspires families to answer the call to adopt a child with special abilities or difficult circumstances from children born with Down syndrome to children at risk of “aging out” of the system and never finding a family and home. The organization gives voice to the voiceless children in foster homes and institutions in international countries.

Brad Murray and his wife Andrea founded the organization in 2103 when their son was born with Down syndrome. The Murrays quickly realized that what they thought would be one of their families greatest challenges would actually be one of their greatest blessings. Brad’s commitment to the cause has led to 83 orphans with down syndrome to find their forever families. Brad and Andrea have welcomed four orphans with down syndrome into their own family.
