WDSD – Virtual Run/Walk
Mar 21 all-day

WDSD V RW Banner 2016

Join the WDSD 321 Virtual Run/Walk – Actively Support Ds Research

World Down Syndrome Day (3/21) 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 2019.

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.  Then on WDSD (3/21) post pictures, or video, of your 3-2-1 activity on our Facebook Group.  Participate on your own, or rally a team to help you participate and fundraise.  After registering, we encourage you to set up your fundraising page and ask friends and family for their support.  We have some great fundraising prizes for this year’s teams

Anyone who registers for the event will receive a cotton t-shirt and a medal, but only those registrations received before March 1 are guaranteed receipt of their shirt by March 21, 2019.

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 activity you decide to do from lacing up your running shoes, snap on your helmet, or dive in as part of the World Down Syndrome Day 321 Virtual Run/Walk and support cognition research!
