For many years, thanks to our wonderful family and friends, "Walkin' with Will" was one of the top fundraising teams in the state of Minnesota. After taking a few years off from fundraising... WE ARE BACK!!! Our team is once again ready to show our friends in the Ds community how much Will is loved, valued and supported.
We love the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota, and I feel beyond fortunate to get to work for such an amazing organization, serving such an amazing community!! I get to see first hand on a daily basis how we are able to be there for families- from the day of dianosis throughout the lifespan.
DSAMN's mission is 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!
