The Central Oregon Down Syndrome Network is presenting a community Buddy Token run and a one mile walk to promote awareness, inclusion and acceptance of all people with Downs Syndrome. This fun community event supports a great cause within the local community and across the nation as part of 275 Buddy Walks planned during Downs Syndrome Awareness month.
This is the 3rd year annual CODSN Buddy Run/Walk and features a new course and the addition of a Buddy Token Run. Day of race registration begins for the 5k run at 9:00 AM and at 10:00 AM for the one mile buddy walk. The gun goes off at 10:00 AM for the 5k run and 11:00 AM for the one mile buddy walk. Both start from River Bend Park.
The run/walk is only the beginning of the day though! Live entertainment, a BBQ lunch, music and raffles are all included for all participants. This includes special guests Tom & Bryan Lambke, a father and his 28 year old son who co-authored of "I just am", Janellybean, local Central Oregon Cheer Squads and Skip Taylor from KMGX-FM Mix 100.7.
Participation in the 5k, a BBQ lunch and all the fun and entertainment to follows is all included in the $5.00 entry fee. This event is designed to spread awareness, inclusion, coordination and acceptance within and throughout the local community of people with Downs syndrome.
Your participation and support is greatly appreciated and your impact goes a long way in promoting a great cause. If you are unable to be present on October 2nd donations can be made to support the Central Oregon Downs Syndrome Network at any time or email the CODSN to learn more about what you can do to promote awareness and progress for those with Downs syndrome year round.
