THE STORY:

It's that time of the year again! A time when we Step Up to support our local Down syndrome community. DSNetwork has been in our lives since we found out Graceyn would be born with a little something extra. They have been a source of support, friendship, and education and we couldn't be happier with being in the position to once again help them out.

 

Graceyn has had a terrific year since the last walk and continues to thrive. She has been hitting her milestones left and right and is getting ready to tranisition into preschool come January! A majority of her health concerns have abated (knock on wood) and with that she has started to give her big sister a run for her money. There is no stopping our GG!

 

Please take a moment to look over the facts listed below and, if you have the means, doante to a worthy cause. Any little amount helps!

 

Thank you, in advance, of your generosity and support for Graceyn and her friends!

 

 

Join 1,500 walkers in front of crowds of more than 30,000 at the ASU Homecoming Parade to show your support for acceptance and inclusion of individuals with Down syndrome. This event is open to all – parents, caregivers, friends, family members and individuals with Down syndrome. Strollers, wheelchairs and wagons are welcome!

WHY: One in every 691 babies in the United States is born with Down syndrome. It is one of the most commonly occurring genetic chromosomal conditions. Funds raised by the SUDS Walk will support DSNetwork’s programs and mission to provide comprehensive education, support and advocacy for individuals and families impacted by Down syndrome, including:
• New Parent Information and Resources
• Early Intervention Education Workshops
• Parents and Schools in Partnership
• Research Resource Information
• Young Adult Social Group
• Medical Outreach
• Community Outreach & Advocacy
• Family Events and Celebrations

ACTIVITIES: All REGISTERED walkers will enjoy face painting, games and balloons, as well as a delicious lunch courtesy of Chili’s Bar & Grill. Don’t miss the debut of the 2015 DSNetwork calendar – only $10 – featuring the beautiful faces of our DSNetwork friends with Down syndrome.

PRIZES: Teams raise awareness of Down syndrome, compete for fantastic prizes and help raise funds to support DSNetwork’s educational programs. The top SUDS fundraiser will lead the 2015 ASU Homecoming Parade and will be featured in DSNetwork’s 2016 calendar!
