Roles and Responsibilities

Athlete Ambassadors are encouraged to be involved in local, state, national and/or international races and sporting events and be active in their community. This may include volunteering at events and races in your local area, training and participating in events and races, promoting health and fitness and assisting NDSS with sporting events, campaigns and initiatives. There are no fundraising requirements to be an Athlete Ambassador and no racing participation requirements. Included in the annual registration fee is NDSS gear to wear during activities, races, and community events. Athlete Ambassadors will cultivate the NDSS mission by building awareness, sharing knowledge, promoting acceptance and highlighting the abilities of individuals with Down syndrome.
