We are proud to announce our second annual official Chromosome 18 Starfish Dash, an official Fiesta event.
Join us at Fiesta, a two-week celebration of events bringing together the community and over 3.5 million participants! Our goal is to bring together health-minded people to run, walk, participate virtually and volunteers to raise awareness and money for our organization’s mission of helping people with chromosome 18 abnormalities overcome the obstacles they face so they may lead happy, healthy and productive lives.
Registration is required and there is NO FEE to participate, however as this is one of Chromosome 18 Registry & Research Society’s biggest fundraiser of the year, fundraising efforts are highly encouraged and appreciated. All funds raised will go toward the goal of making chromosome 18 the first treatable chromosome abnormality.

9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
WHERE: UT Health, 7431 Merton Minter
