There is currently no Down syndrome group in Washington, DC to support their community. Race4Respect wants to spread awareness so Team FUND A STUDENT is raising funds for students in Washington, DC who want to attend. We have been contacted by schools in the District of Columbia in hopes of having their students participate. So please, if you cannot run yourself, please consider donating so that we can offer your spot to a student in DC! We want to stop traffic in Washington, DC for everyone with Down syndrome. This is a family event for us, and by that I mean our blood family, our neighborhood family, our school family, our sports family and everyone in between. We hope that this race gives many others an experience that will change their perspective and remain with them forever. Please join us as we take to the streets of DC and run one of the most coveted 5K courses for Down syndrome awareness!
