Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan

Event Information

The Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan is excited for the 2017 Step UP Walk on Saturday, September 30!  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 & inclusion of people with Down syndrome
• To raise funds locally for education, research and advocacy programs
• To enhance the position of the Down syndrome community, enabling us
to positively influence local and national policy and practice
