Buddy Walk 5K

Sunday, October 6th

The Down Syndrome Association of Brazos Valley is hosting their 3rd annual 5k with a "little extra" at the beautiful Millican Reserve. As people with down syndrome have an extra chromosome, this walk adds an extra .11 miles at the end of the race to show support. Participants may be accompanied by a runner with down syndrome for this final dash to the finish. This 5K is a great way to get outside while supporting a great cause. Proceeds of the race go to cognitive research and education programs for people born with down syndrome. Register here for this trail race. Runners of all abilities are welcome.
