Description

The Chromosome 18 Registry and Research Society is ​a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is leading global research center for chromosome 18 conditions. Chromosome 18 conditions are genetic abnormalities that lead to our special-needs children being born with a wide array of physical challenges like difficulty hearing, walking, and cognitive challenges like learning disabilities and autism. We raise funds to support the research to learn about these conditions and how to treat them. The more funds we raise, the faster the research center can develop treatments to improve the lives of those affected. We also offer support, community, and connection for families of children with chromosome 18 abnormalities.

We are proud to announce our 7th Annual Starfish Dash 5k Run/Walk will be taking place on April 27, 2024, on the UT Health Campus in San Antonio, TX. This is a FREE, family-friendly official Fiesta event open to the whole community that we are planning this in conjunction with UT Health and community partners. Our goal is to bring together health-minded people to run/walk to raise awareness and money for our organization's mission of helping people with chromosome 18 abnormalities overcome the obstacles they face so they may lead healthy and productive lives. Join us for a fun-filled day for the whole family with live music from Fort Sam's own 323d Army band, cosplayers, free health testing, kids' race, free coffee and donuts, and much more!
