IDAHO FALLS — Members of the community will have the opportunity to participate in a celebration of Down syndrome on Saturday, Aug. 25.

East Idaho Down Syndrome Family Connect (EIDS) will be hosting their fourth annual fun run – Eastern Idaho Friends Don’t Count Chromosomes 10k/3.21 mile/fun run and walk.

Race Director Kelsey Salsbery said this event is the organization’s main fundraiser each year. The event is designed to inspire and educate the community about Down syndrome.
