We had such a great time at our second annual 3-2-1 Deacon Dash for Down Syndrome!
We thank all of the wonderful volunteers, the generous sponsors, the runners and the families who made this day possible!
What’s better than crossing the finish line of a race? Crossing TWO finish lines! People with Down syndrome have an extra chromosome, so this race has a little something EXTRA, too! Official times are recorded at the 5K finish line, then runners go on to DASH the extra 0.11 miles to finish at 3.21 miles, in honor of the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome present in people with Down syndrome.
We look forward to seeing you at next year’s race!
