The Extra Mile® Volunteer registration

The Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee (DSAMT) organizes The Extra Mile® to celebrate and support individuals with Down syndrome and their families and to promote understanding and acceptance of those with Down syndrome. Approximately 4,000 participants from Middle Tennessee are expected at this year’s walk, making it the largest Down syndrome awareness event in the state and our primary source of funding for our programs. The Extra Mile® will take place on Saturday, November 2, 2024 on the property of the Wilson County Fairgrounds 175 Peyton Road, Lebanon, TN 37087.

The Extra Mile® would in no way be possible without the help from all of our wonderful volunteers!  We are thrilled with an expected number of 4,000 attendees. 

Volunteer needs at The Extra Mile® include:

  • Set Up/ Take Down
  • Cheering on those with Down syndrome
  • Passing out information and prizes
  • Photographers
  • Registration/T-shirt Booth
  • Food Vendors
  • Trash Monitoring

Volunteers will need to arrive at 6:30 a.m.

Each volunteer is guaranteed to bring smiles, joy, and laughter to so many families at the walk.   Each volunteer must register online and agree to the terms. T-shirts are limited this year due to supply issues, but we will give t-shirts to as many volunteers as possible.
