Goal

Kern Down Syndrome Network (Kern DSN) is celebrating our fifth year serving our community this year, and our priority remains the health and well-being of our community.
As a result of the uncertainty surrounding the global pandemic of the COVID-19 Virus and our county and state’s decision to not hold events of over 250 people, we will postpone our 2nd Annual Walk for a Million Dreams until October 3, 2020 to kick off Down Syndrome Awareness Month.

We are committed to following the safety and health procedures outlined by local and state health officials, and we know, first-hand, the anxiety that our loved ones’ health can cause us.

If you’ve already begun building your team, it can remain active through the October walk. If you haven’t made one yet, it’s never too late, or too early, to form one for our walk.

Thank you for your support, patience, and understanding as we all navigate these fast changing times.

Be well, and be healthy,

Kern Down Syndrome Network Leadership Team
Amber, Lettie, and Kelly


The Kern Down Syndrome Network will be hosting its 2nd Annual Walk for a Million Dreams & World Down Syndrome Day Celebration at the Pyles Boys Camp Group Picnic Area on Saturday, March 21st, 2020 from 10am-5pm.

KDSN invites you to join us in supporting people with Down syndrome in Kern County. People with Down syndrome have dreams and aspirations, just like the rest of society, but often those dreams are under-valued. We invite you to collaborate with us to support individuals with Down syndrome in our community; we are walking to raise awareness, raise funding, and raise our expectations by appreciating the value added to our community when we are all included.
