NEW in 2017!
Special guest, Sean McElwee, from the Emmy-Award winning reality show, Born this Way will be joining us as we stop traffic in Washington, DC for Down syndrome awareness!  The Race4Respect™  believes that experiencing an event with someone who has Down syndrome or any other disability will help to eliminate negative judgments and stereotypes.
