Down Syndrome Ireland Louth Meath Branch in association with LMFM is holding a Fundraising Event called Pound the Pavements to raise vital funds for the Branch.
Pound the Pavements runs from 10 – 30 June 2021 and the funds raised will go directly towards our vital education programmes provided to our members in the Louth Meath Branch of Down Syndrome Ireland, including our early intervention and adult education programmes.

What are we doing?
We are asking friends, family and members of the local communities across Louth and Meath to join us in our virtual summer event – Pound the Pavements – to help raise much needed funds for DSI’s Louth Meath Branch.
When is this happening?
Over 21 days from 10th – 30th (inclusive) June 2021
Who can take part?
We are inviting all family, friends – at home and overseas – as well as members of our local communities across Louth and Meath to take part in this virtual event.
Dress up in purple and green and help us create a sea of walkers and runners across every town, village and road in Louth and Meath to Pound the Pavements over 21 km for the local Louth Meath Branch.
How can you take part?
This is a virtual event. Walk or run – you decide. The activity and pace for this event is entirely up to you. The goal is simply to have fun and reach 21km over 21 days. How you do it is up to you!!
Why 21km over 3 weeks?
Typically, a baby is born with 46 chromosomes. Babies with Down syndrome have an extra copy of one of these chromosomes, chromosome 21, hence the 21km. Babies with Down Syndrome are born with 3 copies of chromosome 21 (rather than the usual two), hence the 3 weeks/ 21 days!
Cost of the event?
€10 for an individual
€20 for a family
There will also be an option to donate further when you register or an option to set up an iDonate page to raise funds.
We would love to hear about your progress. Join us on our virtual challenge social media groups, connect with fellow participants, share your photos and stories on how you are progressing.
