RODS Heroes is a non-profit organization with the mission to inspire families to adopt children with special needs or other unique circumstances.

The name RODS is an acronym for Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome.

Within RODS Heroes, there is a special program entitled Cooper's Mission. Cooper (11) one of the Murrays with Down Syndrome is on a mission to help unite 30 orphaned children with Down syndrome or other unique circumstances with their forever family - one pitch at a time, by making appearances at 30 Major League Baseball games.

Special Fathers Network -
SFN is a dad to dad mentoring program for fathers raising children with special needs. Many of the 500+ SFN Mentor Fathers, who are raising kids with special needs, have said: "I wish there was something like this when we first received our child's diagnosis. I felt so isolated. There was no one within my family, at work, at church or within my friend group who understood or could relate to what I was going through."

SFN Mentor Fathers share their experiences with younger dads closer to the beginning of their journey raising a child with the same or similar special needs. The SFN Mentor Fathers do NOT offer legal or medical advice, that is what lawyers and doctors do. They simply share their experiences and how they have made the most of challenging situations.
