Dear Dash Participants,
As you all know, this year's Dash for Down Syndrome 5K was canceled due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we thank you for your understanding. Even though we will not be able to get together in person for the race, we are excited to be able to offer Dash participants the option to do a Virtual 5K!
If you are interested in running or walking the 5K virtually in honor of World Down Syndrome Day on Saturday, March 21st, we encourage you to wear your brightly colored, even mismatched socks to celebrate. Be sure to take photos and share them on social media with the hashtags #GSODash4Ds, #downsyndromenetworkgso, and #WDSD2020!
Thank you all so much for your support and understanding during this trying time. We hope that this option of completing the race virtually will be a healthy and fun way to help brighten up your week!
In health and love,
The Dash Team and Your Friends at the DSNGG
