Join NDSS in Run for 3.21, a 250-mile historic run from Washington DC to New York City. The run will bring together a team of athletes in the Down syndrome community, working together to run, non-stop, from the steps of the U.S. Capitol to the United Nations. This amazing run will culminate in a presentation at the UN on World Down Syndrome Day, which will showcase our mission as the leading Human Rights Organization for individuals with Down syndrome.
Join us on World Down Syndrome Day. Whether you run, sponsor or donate, you will bring us closer to a world of greater possibilities for people with Down syndrome.
Meet an Athlete Ambassador
Stacy’s fitness journey started when her son, Marcus, was very young. Originally, it was something for her to do to reconnect with herself outside of being a mom. Sometimes, Stacy would exercise while Marcus would sleep and other times Marcus and his sisters would exercise alongside her. Her ultimate dream was to reach Ironman distance, and she knew that she wanted to set an example for Marcus and her three girls: that anything is possible. She can’t think of anything more rewarding than being a part of #TeamNDSS and working towards raising $10,000 to help fund advocacy and outreach programs.
