Named the 2017 BEST 5K by RunWashington, Race4Respect™ 5K & 1K Kids Dash was founded on the belief that if given an opportunity to experience an event together with someone who has Down syndrome, or any other disability, it will help to eliminate negative stereotypes and judgments of individuals with disabilities. Devenio, Inc. recognizes that these experiences are important for people that will one day be hiring these individuals, helping them at the bus stop, chatting with them at a coffee shop, or simply believing in their ability before automatically dismissing them as unable.
Race4Respect™ offers a USATF sanctioned 5K, 1K Kids Dash and a Virtual Race Option on the most coveted course in Washington, DC. This is a family friendly event with beautiful views! Strollers and wheel chairs are welcome!
