The Madison Area Down Syndrome Society is reaching out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness about Down syndrome and the meaningful contributions people with Down syndrome give to our community everyday.
This year's walk is extra special - we have two important announcements about MADSS and two national partnerships we are working on for 2013 and this walk is critical to pulling these off. You read the first announcement here. You can read the second, even bigger, announcement here.
This year your team can have its very own custom team shirts and support MADSS while doing so. Check out our Goodthreads store here. You can use one of our premade templates to get you started, or can you start from scratch.
This week we have two active contests that you should get involved with. You can learn more here.
