Extra "Dash" for Down SyndromeIt's only 1 extra chromosome! Most people have 2 copies of 23 different chromosomes but individuals with Down syndrome are born with 3 copies of the 21st chromosome (the medical term for this is Trisomy 21). That's it only one chromosome difference. So for awareness & support, we are adding to our 5K (3.1 miles) run a short DASH (0.11 mile) for Down syndrome for a total distance of 3.21 miles!!! Your official time will be captured at the 5K finish line; the DASH is just for fun!
