BENEFITING: DOWN SYNDROME NETWORK OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY INC
EVENT DATE: Mar 30, 2014
Benefiting: 5 DC metro Down Syndrome Associations
Most of you know that our youngest daughter, Josslyn, has Down Syndrome (DS). Of our three children, she has been the happiest and most loving. She has grown so much and continually provides us with life lessons. We love her so much and are so blessed that God chose us to care for our sweet angel.
This is not the anuual walk we do with Josslyn each year in October for the Hampton Roads DS association, and I know we don't live in the DC metro area, but I decided to sign up for this cause because I want to continue to raise awareness about DS, to continue to support individuals with DS, and lastly because I decided that I was going to better myself by training for and participating in 5Ks this year. This will be my first 5K that I have participated in...EVER. I would love for anyone to join us; especially if you live in the DC area, if you happen to be in the area the weekend of the event, or if you would consider traveling to DC to walk/run by our side. Information about the walk is below.
Thank you for your time and continued support.

The inaugural Race for Respect 5k and Kids Dash (1km) will be held on Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington DC on March 30, 2014.

Every person with Down syndrome is someone’s son or daughter, a brother or sister, a granddaughter or grandson, an employee, a colleague, a classmate or a friend. The Race for Respect will raise awareness for the treatment of individuals with Down syndrome to be done so with dignity and respect. Click HERE for race course MAP.
