The 321 Miles Project
Welcome! Thank you for reading about our journey! We are Andrew and Kara, and on 3.21.2017, in recognition of World Down Syndrome Day, we will begin a 321 mile journey with a very special purpose – to promote awareness about Down syndrome (Ds). We are calling our journey 321 Miles for 321 Smiles!
We are dedicating each mile that we walk to a person who has Down syndrome.
All of the miles that we walk will be dedicated to a person who has Down syndrome. You can view those who are a part of our journey by checking out the 321 Smiles Photo Gallery.
Become a Smile Sponsor
We are hoping to have each of our 321 dedicated miles “sponsored.” Please help us on our journey by sponsoring a mile. A Smile Sponsor is someone who believes in our cause and wants to help us raise awareness about Down syndrome. You can sponsor a mile for as little as $10. Any and all donations are appreciated – it is more about the act of showing your support than the donation amount itself.

Come Walk With Us
We will start our 321 mile adventure beginning on March 21, 2017 and will finish on June 30, 2017. Many people have asked us if they can walk with us. We’d love to have others join in on our quest to raise awareness so we have created a schedule of planned public walks. Come show your support and join us!
All donations will go to the Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan, a local non-profit 501 (c)(3)organization. The DSGSEMI provides support, resources and advocacy with the aim of increasing awareness and opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome, their families and caregivers.
