About the Event:
Join us as we Blaze a Trail and kick of Down Syndrome Awareness Month at Step Up for Down Syndrome 2023! CADSA’s local Step Up for Down Syndrome (SUDS) walk is one of 300 events held annually across the country focused on increasing funding and awareness for individuals with Down syndrome and their families. This year's event will be held on October 1, 2023, 2-5pm, at Mt. Hope Park. Attendees will participate in a 1 mile walk around Mt. Hope Park with light refreshments, socializing, and outdoor games/playground fun to follow.

We are pleased to offer the option to order a customizable event shirt. You can choose either a dated or undated shirt, available in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes. T-shirts, long sleeved shirts, and sweatshirts are available in both adult and youth sizes. Order by September 11, 2023 to receive your swag in time for the event. (Please note: Ordering a shirt is optional and not required for participation in the event.) 

As SUDS is typically our primary fundraiser, donations are welcomed but not required. We encourage participants to give what they are able and invite others to contribute to our cause. SUDS donations will be collected through the end of October in recognition of Down Syndrome Awareness Month. Thank you for supporting the Capital area Down syndrome community!
