We are thrilled to announce that this year we will have become partner to the HUNGARIAN DOWN FOUNDATION, that helps families with Down syndrome people with counselling, activities, and all sorts of support.
In the framework of the cooperation we are aiming to provide racing opportunities for athletes with down syndrome, hence we have launched a new charity race: the “+1 Chromosome ergo sprint race”. Starting at 10.30, Saturday 1st of April – we ask all of you who are not on the water to come and cheer us at the stage.
Olympians from different sports will form teams with athletes from Down Foundation and will race together 300m on the indoor rowing machines.
For people with Down syndrome, the most important is to be accepted by the society, to receive love and be treated as equal members of the society. #notspecialneeds just human needs. By bringing alive the “+1 chromosome ergo sprint race” and the special T-shirts and a silent auction at our gala dinner, we try to raise awareness to the importance of integrated sport activities, acceptance and love.
By ordering and wearing the T-shirt (see attached the picture), you will also help us spread the word of #NOTSPECIALNEEDS JUST HUMAN NEEDS.
PLEASE SEND NAME OF THE TEAM, NUMBER OF T-SHIRTS AND SIZES ACCORDING TO THE ATTACHED SIZE TABLE TO ZITAVIMI(at)GMAIL(dot)COM
