22nd Annual Step Up for Down Syndrome WalkOctober 6, 12:00 pm-4:00 pm
Each October during Down Syndrome Awareness Month, STEP UP for Down Syndrome calls on the community to celebrate the abilities and accomplishments
of individuals with Down Syndrome. The Down Syndrome Association of Memphis & The Mid-South (DSAM) has watched this event grow and impact the surrounding community for the past twenty years, growing in attendance from 60 the first year in 1998 to 3,000 in 2018. STEP UP is a family-friendly event. It is a Sunday afternoon celebration with a one-mile fun walk, live entertainment, a picnic, children’s activities, and team and individual prizes. The Down Syndrome Association of Memphis and the Mid- South’s mission for this event is to join together with the community to show that people with Down Syndrome are “More alike than Different”. Your support is greatly appreciated.
