October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month!
We are working to spread the news and walking to raise money for the cause. We are inviting you to be part of the movement. Share this with everyone you know. Join the team and come walk with us.
Our favorite tiny guy will be out there strutting his stuff with his new shoes and his sweet sunglasses. Everyone who registers to walk gets lunch and a T-shirt and everyone who donates gets CAKE BALLS(no matter the donation size)! That's right, I'm warming up the oven and giving back to everyone who gives, lets make me sorry I volunteered!
Everything you need to know is here. If you want to know how you can contribute reach out to Jen or Ashley.
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!
