Down syndrome Outreach (DsO) is a program for individuals, family members, and caregivers from birth/diagnosis, all the way through life. DsO exists to advocate for the rights, promote the potential and abilities, and create a supportive and inclusive community for people with Down syndrome. You help us continue to build awareness and inclusion in our community and provide education and support programs for individuals with Down syndrome, their families and community members. By sponsoring the 2017 DsO Buddy Walk, you will support all of DsO’s important programs, including: ● Programs, activities and family support events providing learning and social opportunities for those with Down syndrome and their family members. ● Awareness events to celebrate individuals with Down syndrome and create awareness about the important contributions they make to our communities. ● Educational workshops for caregivers, educators and self-advocates to foster independence. ● Advocacy efforts supporting legislative initiatives, educational and medical support, and community awareness. ● Provide Welcome Baskets and New Family Resource Folders for new families. *Your donation of $10 or more directly impacts your local community. GET INVOLVED. BE INSPIRED.
