The Dancing Chromosomes are young adults with Down Syndrome who are great friends and wonderful advocates. We have fun dancing anywhere, and some of us are on the UpDownFunk dance troupe with Curio Studio. We hope our team is filled with dancers, walkers, families and friends!
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. The Annual STEP UP FOR DOWN SYNDROME walk is their 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 leading up to this event provide the funding to deliver their mission and programming throughout the year! We love the many events that are serving self-advocates and fun youth and young adults with Down Syndrome!
