Step Up for Down Syndrome
Walk & 3.21 mile Run
Thank you all who supported, walked, ran and came out to celebrate Down syndrome on Saturday, November 7th.
What a BRIGHT, SUNNY AND FUN DAY for the Step Up for Down Syndrome – DSIA’s 10th Annual Walk & 1st Ever 5K Run!
The Walk had it all – old friends, new friends, great exhibitors, wonderful entertainment, fantastic food, and…the Walk/Run raised almost $25,000 that will enable DSIA to continue to provide resources and support within the greater Sacramento area! Donations to the DSIA Step Up Walk can still be made until December 31, 2015!
Because of the generosity of family, friends, and co-workers, this is just an example of the types of programs that will benefit from your fundraising:
- Parent-to-Parent Program
- Educational speakers
- Social events
- Medical Outreach Program
- iCan Bike Program
Congratulations to all the teams and individuals for their donations and participation. Special congratulations to the following teams:
Team Nina – Most Money Raised
