TIPS AND IDEAS FOR YOUR VIRTUAL RACE
Use different apps like Google Maps, Map My Run, Nike Running, etc., to determine a 3.21-mile route near you to run, walk, bike, hike, row, paddle, swim or whatever you like! You can do this in a group, with a friend or by yourself. It’s up to you how will you Race. You can share your Racing for 3.21 with your friends, family, and other members of the Down syndrome Community through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using #WDSD #Racingfor321 #TeamNDSS!
Maximize your fundraising impact! Ask your friends and family to sponsor your Race. Ask them to donate per mile or to donate a flat amount for the total 3.21 miles. Please also keep in mind that there’s no set amount for sponsorship, so your friends and family can sponsor you at any level that’s feasible for them. You can also choose to pay more than the registration fee as an extra donation!
Please join us in this opportunity to raise awareness for those you are Racing for 3.21 for, all while supporting NDSS and WDSD.
