Dash for Down Syndrome - GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge Race Description

Run, Walk, or Dash with us!  
We, the people of the Down syndrome community, are challenging YOU to move for acceptance – to prove that every person should be accepted for who they are. We live in a world that is often separated based on differences. It is time for people to come together regardless of race, gender, diagnosis, sexual orientation, or religion. We need universal ACCEPTANCE for all people.
