Welcome to our 2019 Step UP for Down Syndrome fundraising page! It is hard to believe that this is our 9th walk to support the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Richmond.  We have made so many friends and have had opportunities for Ryan to partiipate in activiities because of DSAGR.  Ryan will be going into the 2nd grade at evergreen Elementary School in Chesterfield County.  He is just as energetic and happy as ever.  He loves going to school to be with his friends.  Ryan has continued to play soccer with the RVAccess soccer group through the Richmond Kickers, but also had a chance to play baseball through the Miracle League.  He had a great time and hopes to play again in the Fall.  Ryan loves to go see the Flying Squirrels baseball team play and see the fireworks afterwards.  Other activities that he likes to do is Putt-Putt, visit Busch Gardens, and swim.  Ryan is friendly, kind, empathetic, sympathetic, loving, funny, stubborn, a problem solver, and definitely has a mind of his own.  His speech has come a long way again this year.  We could not be prouder of all of Ryan's accomplishments and cannot wait to see what the next year brings for Ryan.

We are walking to show our support for more than 18 programs and other services offered to individuals with Down syndrome and their families throughout Central Virginia. From First Call to transition services to employment skills development, DSAGR is making an impact on OUR community!  Every dollar raised brings us one step closer to ensuring that every individual will have the opportunity to reach his or her potential.

Our fundraising efforts will support local programs and services, as well advocacy and public awareness initiatives that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome in our community.

We would love for you to join our team this year to walk.  If you cannot make it, please consider making a tax-deductible donation today and take the first step toward helping us achieve our goal. Thank you for your support!
