2023 Photos

Thank you all for being a part of the 2023 DSACO Run for Down Syndrome! It was a wonderful night and we're so pleased with the turnout. We have photography links for you to peruse and download as you desire. We can't wait to see you again soon!

PHOTOS LINK 1 - photos courtesy of Brittany Coleman. "There are multiple sections of photos (pre-race, start of race, finish line, etc.) which can all be found near the top of the gallery. No download PINs are necessary for photo downloads. They will all be high-resolution images without watermarks once downloaded to a phone or computer. I typically ask that photos not be edited or altered in any way in order to maintain an accurate representation of my work." 


In-Person Race Start times: 6:50 PM Kids Race, 7:00 PM 3K/5K/10K

The event benefits the Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio (DSACO). DSACO’s mission is to support families, promote community, and encourage a lifetime of opportunities for people with Down syndrome. Monies raised from this event go to support DSACO and their programs, including recreational scholarships for children and adults with Down syndrome and other DSACO initiatives such as iCan Bike Camp and Golf Academy.
