The Piedmont Down Syndrome Support Network has announced plans for the inaugural “3-2-1 Deacon Dash for Down Syndrome,” which will take place on Saturday, April 30 at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds. This will be a 5K race starting at 8:30 a.m. with an additional .11 mile added for a total distance of 3.21 miles, the total distance a nod to the three copies of the 21st chromosome that individuals with Down Syndrome possess.  Official timing for runners will be captured at the true 5K mark – the “dash” will just be for fun. The event will also include a one- mile Fun Run that will take place at 8:00 a.m. “We are really looking forward to this great new event that will provide wonderful support for those with Down Syndrome in our community and their families,” said McNeil Cronin, Board Member and Parent with PDSSN. “It will be a great day for bringing the whole family out to have fun and raise funds and awareness for an incredible cause.”

Participants can register for both the 5K and the Fun Run through April 26 by visiting Fees for the races will be $30 and$20, respectively.  Race entries will also be accepted on site the day of the event, where they will be$35 and $25.
