The Down Syndrome Network of Greater Greensboro (DSNGG) is proud to partner with Trivium Racing, Inc. and offer its third annual 5K walk/run, in honor of World Down Syndrome Day! The 3.21 Dash for Down Syndrome is a traditional family-friendly 5K … with a little something extra! Participants will continue on after an officially timed 5K finish line to “DASH” an extra spirited 0.1 mile to a second finish line for a 3.21-mile finish, signifying the three 21st chromosomes that characterize individuals with Down syndrome. If you’re lucky, you may even be accompanied during your extra dash by a beautiful community member with Down syndrome!

Event proceeds will directly benefit the DSNGG in its efforts to support individuals with Down syndrome and their families in our community. All event proceeds will help the DSNGG continue to provide many programs and events to our families, from providing welcome bags for new parents in the hospital to hosting speakers for our parents on topics such as special education rights and financial planning. The money raised specifically at the Dash will fund the DSNGG’s new “Dash for Your Dreams” Scholarship, which will provide local teen to adult applicants with Down syndrome monetary support to help them reach their dreams of attending post-secondary school or obtaining the skills necessary to procure and maintain meaningful employment.

The DSNGG holds it’s 3rd Annual Dash for Down Syndrome in celebration of World Down Syndrome Day (which is celebrated annually on 3/21, in honor of the 3 copies of the 21st chromosome present in people with Down syndrome). To celebrate, we are encouraging all participants to join us in the “Rock Your Socks” Campaign — be sure to wear crazy, brightly-colored, or even mismatched socks on race day to celebrate our uniqueness, particularly our friends with Down syndrome!
