Dash for Down Syndrome
The Down Syndrome Group is excited to announce that we are bringing back our Dash 4 Down Syndrome 5 K & 1 Mile Fun Walk on March 23 in celebration and awareness of World Down Syndrome Day (3:21)! We are partnering with The OC in Ozark to make this the best “Dash” ever. DSGO serves over 20 counties so we are expecting our participation to be huge.
DSGO provides family support, medical and educational training opportunities, advocacy for legislation and employment opportunities to over 300 families. It is through awareness events such as “Dash” that we can continue and expand our services. This year alone we have been able to bring medical training to medical professionals and provide support to multiple school districts and their families.
We are looking for participants for “Dash” and sponsors for our t-shirts and activities. We will be offering medals for certain divisions, grab bags, inflatables and games for the younger participants and the opportunity for businesses to set up resource tables. Please consider being a part of this event that will serve multiple areas and our members with Down syndrome.
T-shirts are not guaranteed on registrations received after March 10 at noon.
Packet pick up will be Friday, March 22 from 3:00-6:30 at The OC.
