Run for 3.21 will take place on Saturday, March 19 to Monday, March 21, 2022. This three-day journey will take place between New York City and Washington, D.C. The team of runners will spend over 50 hours, day and night, completing the course, which winds its way through the northeast’s rolling countryside, bustling downtowns, and the hearts of New York City, Newark, Princeton, Philadelphia, Wilmington, Baltimore, and Washington D.C.



“I’ve rarely been a part of something so powerful and inspiring as Run for 3.21, specifically in honor of my two kids with Down syndrome, Jasmine and Joel. I think it’s important to be a part of something bigger than myself to show my kids what is achievable when you work hard and focus. It’s easy to feel alone as a parent of a child with Down syndrome, but the friendships and memories that I made at Run for 3.21 changed that feeling immediately. The camaraderie and encouragement sustained me over the three-days as we ran. It’s a joy to give back to NDSS for all that they have given to me and my family. ”

“Run for 3.21 was an amazing experience and it gave me the opportunity to meet and connect with other parents of children with Down syndrome. We were able to not only share our experiences but also learn more about programs available to our loved ones. It also gave me the opportunity to build a special friendship with my running partner Jim and his wife Dori, as we shared stories of our daughters Penny and Isla. ”
