2019 Designer Genes Walk for Down Syndrome

Join Designer Genes of North Dakota in supporting and raising awareness for the inclusion of individuals with Down syndrome at the 16th annual walk on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at the State Capitol in Bismarck.

Registration and entertainment begin at 10:00 a.m., with the approximately 1-mile walk kicking off at 11 a.m. Pre-registration is not necessary and no registration fees are collected from walkers. The walk promotes inclusion and is supported by generous community sponsors. Walkers who wish to donate with their registration will receive an official Designer Genes T-shirt.

This is the 16th annual walk to take place in Bismarck. It is our goal to use this event to raise awareness about Down syndrome in our community and the importance of inclusion. The walk is not primarily focused on fund raising, however we work hard to create relationships with sponsors, families, and community members to raise funds to benefit education, research, and advocacy initiatives, as well as local programs and services.

WHEN: Saturday, September 28, 
2019 - Fun, entertainment, and donations begin at 10:00 a.m., with the walk beginning at 11 a.m. 

WHERE: State Capitol Grounds, Bismarck – A donation center will be set up close to the Capitol Steps and the walk will be conducted around the Capitol loop (600 E Boulevard Avenue).

WHO: About 2,000 people are expected to attend. Participants include people with Down syndrome from around the state, their families, friends, teachers, coworkers and other supporters. The general public is encouraged to attend and show their support for people of all abilities.
