The RODS 2100: Virtual Race

The RODS 2100: The Journey Home is an event meant to highlight the RODS mission. We are asking hundreds of runners to join us on the journey as we strive to raise $500,000 to fund 50 orphans in 2021 and share the joys of adopting a child with Down syndrome. For the many runners who cannot be part of our physical 2,100 mile race, we are offering a virtual race option.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact us at
