About This Activity

Shirt cut-off date was February 1st for receiving them in time for the race. Shirts ordered between now and March 31st  will arrive after the race.

World Down Syndrome Day is March 21st and a global awareness event…and we need you to help spread the word. The quality of life of people with Down syndrome can be improved by meeting their health care needs, including regular check-ups with health professionals to monitor mental and physical condition and to provide timely intervention be it physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, counselling or special education. Help us raise awareness by participating in our virtual run/walk that you can do from anywhere! Helping us bring awareness will help us raise funds to help support those diagnosed with down syndrome and also the families that are affected.

All donations will go directly Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network (DSDN).
