Description

Join us in running or walking 3.21 miles to support and celebrate individuals with Trisomy 21 (commonly referred to as 'Down syndrome').

The proceeds of the 16th Annual Run for the Buds will go to the Down Syndrome Association of Delaware. The DSA of Delaware is a non-profit organization which supports families, promotes community involvement, and encourages a lifetime of opportunities for people with Down syndrome. We envision a community in which individuals with Down syndrome are healthy, happy and successful. They and their families are effective advocates for their needs.

This event is presented by Water Doctors of Delaware.
