Run for Down Syndrome Awareness AND Toby

By Lifeasarunningmom @RunningMom6
Run for Down Syndrome Awareness AND TobyOctober is Down Syndrome Awareness month. If you follow me on facebook, twitter, or instagram this is no shocking news as I have been posting a daily fact every day so far in October and yes, it will be continuing. Don't worry if you have been missing them, I will be doing a final wrap-up post here as well. It is the least I can do for my buddy, Toby!
With that said, I had a crazy idea less than 24 hours ago. A virtual run for Down Syndrome Awareness and for Toby! Who wants to join me? It really is easy and since I am pulling this together all pretty last minute, it is quite informal. But when are virtual runs really that formal anyhow?
Here is the scoop:
  • Run any distance you want on October 31st. Why October 31st? Because it is the last day of October and Down Syndrome Awareness month. Let's wrap things up with a BANG! And it is my favorite holiday, just saying. Hey, I just got an idea! Read the next point....
  • If you are feeling the Halloween spirit run in a costume!
  • You can run ANYWHERE you want. Inside. Outside. Just run.
  • Speed doesn't matter. This isn't a race. It is about building awareness, love, and support.
  • Post your pictures on my facebook page. I would love to pull them all together in a collage to show Toby how many of us ran for him and Down Syndrome Awareness; therefore, by sharing your pictures you are giving me the ok to use it.
Are you ready to run?
