Celebrate Down Syndrome with us!
It’s through generous donations from individuals and sponsors that Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona has been able to serve individuals of all ages who have Down syndrome since 1991.
Funds raised at the SHARING DOWN SYNDROME WALK allows Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona to continue our family support by providing monthly educational meetings, hosting our Mom’s Mixer and Dads Group, offering assistance, knowledge, and resources, and personally delivering our new parent support packages to families throughout the state of Arizona.
The SDS Walk is for all ages and abilities with a short stroller friendly walk around Tempe Diablo Stadium.
Activities will include a free light continental breakfast, fun with bouncers, carnival games with prizes, face painting, a marketplace, and dancing to the music of our wonderful DJ. Stop by our exhibitor booths to learn more about the activities, resources, and services available in our community.
Join us if you have Down syndrome, if you love someone who does, or if you want to show your support.
Register now to create your own team to WALK in honor of someone you love who has Down syndrome. There will be exciting prizes this year for the top fundraising teams, (details to come) and the top team will be named our 20th Annual Walk Grand Marshal. There is a $25 team registration fee which applies toward your team’s fundraising goal. See you soon!
Walk t-shirts will be sold at the Market Place while supplies last.
