Sydney has been lighting up people's faces for years now. She is such an inspiration and has truly changed mine and other's views about Down Syndrome. Her precocious personality is only matched by her desire for complete independence and the keys to the car so she can "dribe". Get used to seeing her face, she's going places.
The Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota is a statewide nonprofit organization with the mission to empower individuals and their families, to create community, and to celebrate the abilities of people with Down syndrome. Our Annual STEP UP FOR DOWN SYNDROME walk is our largest awareness event and fundraiser. Over 5,000 people join us in person at Como Park every September to raise awareness, celebrate abilities, and create community.
The money raised through the personal campaigns of our AWESOME TEAM CAPTAINS & FAMILIES leading up to this event provide the funding to deliver our mission and programming throughout the year!
