EVENT DATE: Oct 14, 2017
It's time to start thinking about DSAGR's Step Up for Down Syndrome 5K and Family Festival! Neil's family and friends know how near and dear to our heart this fantastic organization is to our family - he and we have benefited so much from our association with it since Neil was a lil peanut (about 6 weeks old), and here he is now 15 years old!! From the social groups for all ages (think camping, bowling, painting parties, trampoline parks, cooking classes, yoga classes, gymnastics classes, etc), to literacy and learning programs, to a newly kicked off summer employment academy, to a First Call program to support new and expecting parents, to a top-notch annual education conference for parents and educators, to an AMAZING Holiday Party (complete with yummy food, superheroes and a visit from 'The Big Guy' (aka, Santa), to opportunities for parent networking and support, and much more... DSAGR has grown in leaps and bounds over the years, providing fantastic support to individuals with Down syndrome and their families, as well as advancing community awareness, acceptance, and appreciation for them. For all these reasons, we believe it's a very worthy cause, because it's only through fundraisers like this one (by far our biggest fundraiser of the year) that DSAGR can continue to provide all these wonderful programs and activities. Thanks, y'all for your support!
