This team made up of Keikis ages 5-13 will be joining Urijah (diagnosed with Dup15q) and will be running and challenging their physical capabilities to raise awareness and funds for Dup15q Alliance. The Keiki Makahiki Challenge is a 1.5 mile obstacle course at Kualoa Ranch that will be challenging for all ages. Getting the word out about dup15q syndrome is a key piece of the Alliance's mission.Their fundraising mission is simple: encourage personal philanthropy that helps underwrite research, potential treatments, and a variety of support opportunities for affected children and their families.
Any donation will go a long way to helping this team meet their goal for DUP15Q ALLIANCE

I'm excited to do this challenge in honor of my cousin, Urijah. I don't like it that he has this disorder because it makes it hard for him to do things that the rest of us can do. Even though Urijah has this disorder, he still always makes us laugh and is so much fun to play with. I love my cousin very much and I'm grateful that this alliance tries to learn more about Dup15q and they take care of Urijah and his family.

I also have fun with Urijah at our UH tailgate parties where we share Icees and Skittles! I don't like getting dirty but for Urijah... I'll go for it!
