Come out and run with the chromies for a certified, chip timed 5K run/walk through the scenic Gemini Springs Park. There will also be a 1 Mile Fun Walk for those wanting to come out and enjoy the scenery with a shorter stroll. This 5K/1 Mile Fun Walk is in honor World Down Syndrome Day, which is on March 21st each year. This date is significant as it represents the 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, which causes Down syndrome. Plan to stay after the 5K/1 Mile Fun Walk and bring the family to the Spring Festival. Admission to the festival is free and each 5K participant will receive a $5 coupon off a wristband.
