The Brainy Bunch Race for Every Child 2017

I am Wonsang You, a staff scientist working in the Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC. I have been passionately studying in utero functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the fetal brain and placenta with Dr. Catherine Limperopoulos in order to find early biomarkers for impaired pregnancies such as congenital heart disease or intrauterine growth restriction. (Visit this page for more details.)

I am participating in the Race for Every Child because I want to make a difference in the lives of kids in our community. By making a donation on my page, you will help care for children in our community and around the world by supporting Children's National Health System.

"Children's Lives Matter."

Your donation helps Children¹s National develop innovative therapies, invest in research to cure childhood diseases, and provide access to the same level of world-class care for every child - even if their family can't afford to pay.

Thank you for helping to give children the opportunity for a healthier future! God bless you.

Race for Every Child

I completed the full marathon course in Race for Every Child at October 21, 2017, starting from Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. and turning around near United States Capitol and through Independence Ave. My pace was relatively slower than others and lagged behind the others on the race, but I never stopped and finally crossed the finish line. It was the first but extraordinary experience which gave me great courage and hope toward sick children although it was very challenging for me to run 5 Km.
