#Race4Respect

Running is physically and emotionally taxing. To gain endurance it requires discipline and time. When we run we are reminded nothing comes easy for Addison. He has fought for every milestone he has achieved and will struggle for the rest of his life. Yet he continues to endure, to move forward and to inspire all he comes in contact with. Addison's team is comprised of people dedicated to helping him overcome his challenges and reach his greatest potential.

One voice, one vision....celebrating Down syndrome in the DC metropolitan area.

The Race4Respect™, presented by KOONS of Silver Spring, is a 5K & 1K Kids Dash in Washington, DC. Join us on Saturday, May 30, 2015, for the second annual Race4Respect™, one of the most coveted 5K courses in the DC metro area! Run in the shadow of the nation's capital, the Washington Monument and many other DC treasures. The Race4Respect™ is a collaborative project led by devenio, inc. and eight Down syndrome affiliate groups in the DC metro area and surrounding regions including Frederick, Baltimore, Annapolis, Southern Maryland and Richmond. Expected attendance is 2000 runners.

The mission of Race4Respect™ is to build community partnerships with the goal of increasing Down syndrome awareness. We believe that if given the chance to experience an event with a person with Down syndrome or another disability, negative stereotypes, barriers and judgments can be overcome.
