2018 WDSD – Virtual Run/Walk
Mar 21 all-day

WDSD V RW Banner 2016Join the WDSD 321 Virtual Run Walk – Actively Support DS Research

World Down Syndrome Day (3/21) is quickly approaching and, here at LuMind Research Down Syndrome, we’re wondering how YOU plan to celebrate.

Won’t you join us in *actively* showing your support of Down syndrome cognition research by signing up to participate in the World Down Syndrome Day 321 Virtual Run/Walk event?

This “virtual” event is an opportunity for people across the world to come together to advocate and self-advocate for persons with Down syndrome.  We have a goal to unite a team of supporters across the world in raising funds for Down syndrome research by team fundraising throughout the month of March 2018.

To participate, we ask that you commit to taking part in some kind of physical activity throughout the month of March involving any sort of variation of the numbers 3-2-1. Participate on your own, or rally a team to take part in the activity together (organize a fun run, meet up for a walk) – just get moving!

Some ideas:

  • Commit to walking or running 3.21 miles
  • Swim 321 laps in the pool
  • Hop on the elliptical or Stairmaster for 32.1 minutes

Don’t be afraid to get creative! We’ve had participants send us their photos of going for a run along Route 321 or commit to running 3.21 miles EVERY day throughout the month of March!

Whatever you decide to do, sign up today! 

Your $30 Your registration fee supports research being conducted to develop drug treatments improve memory, learning, and communication in persons with Down syndrome. Studies are also aimed at treatments to reduce the impact of Alzheimer’s disease in individuals with Down syndrome and may also help the You can register either as an “individual runner” or as a “team captain,” who is someone agreeing to rallying a team together to participate.  After registering, we encourage you to set up your own personal fundraising page and ask friends and family for their support.

Anyone who registers for the event will receive a cotton t-shirt, but only those registrations received before March 1 are guaranteed receipt of their shirt by March 21, 2018.  You can also opt to add a medal to commemorate your participation in the virtual event or upgrade to a dri-fit technical shirt!

So lace up your running shoes, snap on your helmet, and dive in as part of the World Down Syndrome Day 321 Virtual Run/Walk and support cognition research!
