About This Activity

Join us on World Down Syndrome Day, March 21st, 2015 starting at 9 am at the scenic Tennessee Riverpark to help raise awareness for our loved ones with Down syndrome in the Chattanooga area.  This is a perfect way to show your support for those in our community who are more like you than they are different! 

"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start." Run a competitive 5K timed by Chattanooga Track Club or run/walk/stroll in a 1-mile Fun Run, and join us to raise awareness, advocate inclusion, and support local programs and services for individuals with Down Syndrome and their families on World Down Syndrome Day.

Entertainment provided by Slim Pickins Bluegrass Band. Complimentary food and drinks will be available. NEW THIS YEAR: Kiddie-K (1K) for children of all abilities ages 12 and under!
