Maya's Dream Team would love for you to join us in the Step up for Down Syndrome Walk On November 1st!
As always registration is free and you even get a free t-shirt and a free lunch. We ask that you please make a donation to the Down Syndrome Network for all the wonderful work they do in our community. If you can't come to the walk you can still support us from afar. No donation is too small!
To find out more about Maya, please visit: http://evrfwd.blogspot.com/ or my facebook page.

Jo, Maya and Devesh
Below is more info on the walk:
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.
