Event Information

The Step Up Walk is a family-friendly event open to all children and adults with Down syndrome, their families, friends, and thousands of local supporters. As a direct result of event sponsorships, team fundraising, and generous public donations, the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan is able to continue providing educational resources, informational programs, parent support networks, financial assistance, and social events for individuals with Down syndrome. The Step Up Walk has three primary goals:

To promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.

To raise funds to support the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan.

To encourage communities to embrace, empower and promote opportunities for meaningful lives for individuals with Down syndrome.
