Welcome, Team Captain!
Thank you for registering for the 25th annual Down Syndrome Festival and 5K as a Team Captain! You will join more than 6,000 friends and family as we come together to raise funds and awareness for people of all ages with Down syndrome. We have an exciting and fun day planned for everyone this year at our new location – The Myriad Botanical Gardens!
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Myriad Botanical Gardens, 301 W. Reno Ave., Oklahoma City. We are excited to celebrate the day as we walk and run to show support for our families and all individuals with Down syndrome. This year’s event includes a new race and awareness walk route, food trucks along with many new fun and exciting vendors and entertainment.
Enclosed you will find information about serving as a Team Captain and information about setting up your team. This information will help you with participation and fundraising efforts for the 2019 Festival and 5K. As we celebrate our 25th anniversary, we are asking you to help us reach our goal of $200,000, which will allow the organization to continue to provide the valuable programs, services and resources to members.
Your participation in the Down Syndrome Festival & 5K will help DSACO to “raise awareness and provide resources, as well as promote acceptance and inclusion for people with Down syndrome.” So, get your team members signed up, grab your team t-shirts and let’s get started! We are so grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you on Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Down Syndrome Festival and 5K!
