Ds Connections Nw is Proud to Announce our 9th Annual Inland Northwest Step UP for Down Syndrome Walk!
Saturday, September 23th starting at 9:00 a.m. (9:00 a.m, announcements, 9:30 a.m. Walk starts), people from all over the Inland Northwest whose lives have been touched by Down syndrome will join with members of our local business community in helping to raise awareness of the many abilities that people with Down syndrome possess and to celebrate the many ways they contribute to the benefit of both our professional and civic communities.
We are asking for your support to help make the 2017 Step UP for Down Syndrome Walk a huge success.
As you consider your donation, please know that your sponsorship of either a team or an individual walker will help Ds Connections Nw provide support, advocacy and resources to improve the quality of life for people with Ds, their families and the community at large throughout the coming year.
Over 700 walkers participated in our 2016 event, not counting the families and friends that turned out to cheer them on. And, over $35,000 was raised!
We are pleased again to announce, that the Inland Northwest Step UP for Down Syndrome Walk will be held in conjunction with Valleyfest at Discovery Park in Spokane Valley.
All proceeds benefit Ds Connections Nw and its mission to improve the quality of life of persons with Down syndrome and to provide a network of support and resources for them, their families and the community at large.
** Early bird registration currently open! After Friday, September 8, registration fees go up!
** Walk scholarships are available! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
