About this Virtual Run: SHOW US YOUR SOCKS! Rock your best socks during the month of March to support reading and excellence in education. 3.1k, 5k, 10k, or 3210 steps, running, walking or rolling — It all counts!
Every step you take in the Rock Your Socks Run helps the DS ACT Literacy and Education Center provide evidence-based reading instruction to people who have Down syndrome.
They’ll also share what they know with schools through professional development and mentoring, and they’ll conduct research on best practices, because everyone should be able to read, and what works for people with Down syndrome can work for others, too.
All participants will receive this colorful 3.5″ running book medal.
