Did you know Step Up for Ds is DSACC's largest fundraising event of the year and accounts for almost 35% of our annual budget?  That is why this peer-to-peer fundraising opportunity is crucial - it amplifies DSACC's reach and impact. When you engage your network to raise funds, not only are you increasing financial support but also spreading awareness about Down syndrome.

This grassroots approach helps us connect with more people, fostering a broader and more inclusive community. The funds raised directly support essential programs and services, like PRINT21, Buddies Bodies & Boundaries, Creating A Plan, Sib Shops, Tiny Tots, and our many monthly support groups; enabling us to enhance the quality of life for individuals with Down syndrome and their families. Your efforts ensure that we can continue our mission and make a lasting difference.

To thank you for your support we have some great prizes for you to win!

  • The first 25 people to register will win a special DSACC "Leave your mark on the world" tote bag printed by our amazing printers at PRINT21
  • First 25 people to raise $250 dollars will receive a special, one-of-a-kind t-shirt that was designed and printed by the talented printers at PRINT21
  • Team Captains from the top 10 "Largest teams" and "Largest Fundraisers" will be entered to win a $250 Visa gift card! (This will be based on team totals at the end of the day on October 18, 2024). 
  • Team costumes & team spirit encouraged- we will be awarding a prize for the Most Spirited Team at the end of the walk!

Don't miss out on a day of joy, community, and making a difference!

Things to note:

Shade is limited so we encourage friends to bring their own pop up tents to stay cool.

The walk route is out the parking lot to Clovis Avenue and then back into the lot from 5th Avenue.  ***Parents who have small kiddos or friends who like to run - please note we are walking along a very busy street for a bit, so plan accordingly!
