History of Run for 21

The Run for 21 (formerly Relay and Run for 21) celebrates the amazing lives of people with Down syndrome. The race coincides with our largest celebration of the year – Step Up for Down Syndrome. This year, due to unique circumstances, we will be doing everything virtually. All proceeds will benefit the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis and DADS Community Outreach Fund. 

Relay and Run for 21 was started by the amazing Marvin Family nine years ago. Thank you so much to the Marvin Family and Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome (DADS St. Louis) for their tireless efforts to make the Relay and Run for 21 an amazing event. The DSAGSL is honored to host this run and continue to see it raise awareness for Down syndrome
