Walk or run, 1k or more, it's DYRK1A Syndrome we do it for.
DYRK1A Syndrome US is hosting the first "Virtual" Run a K for DYRK1A. Individuals can choose to run, walk, or simply join a team and cheer on all warriors from the comfort of their home!
We will celebrate our Awareness Day with the run/walk. Of course, being the awareness day Friday, 21st, we will be able to double down in 2020
All participants are encouraged to share their Run photos on social media! Please use the following hashtags #runakfordyrk1a, #dyrk1asyndrome and #dyrk1a so we can cheer on all of our WARRIORS! If you can't run, we'd also love to see you do something FUN (i.e. splashing in a pool, going for a bike ride, baking cookies,...). Join us for the fun.
Stay tuned, we will have fun contest from now to the race to make sure we are all in touch.
During the registration process, there is an option to create and/or join a team. We encourage all DYRK1A families to create their own group, allowing family and friends to rally together and raise funds as a team! Prizes will be awarded to the team with the most participants, team with the most money raised, and team with the greatest team spirit!
There is no obligation to join a team and participation can be done on an individual level!
Pricing for participants 18 years and older: $10.00. Participants between 10-17 years old: $5.00. Participants 9 years older or younger free (will be reflected during check out).

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that all participants respect their state and/or local health department's guidelines on gathering and choosing a location to run/walk. Remember, this is a VIRTUAL event and can be performed in your very own neighborhood or home!
