As the largest DSACF fundraising event of the year, the Step Up Walk provides a large percentage of the support needed for programs and resources needed for the DSACF to fulfill its mission throughout the year. Here are just a few examples of how that money may be used:
Covers the costs of group classes dealing with essential early intervention building blocks along the lines of sign, music or occupational therapy
New Family Celebration, New Parent Baskets and hospital outreach
Family & Community Group Events to connect parents and children with each other
Educational Workshops to empower parents with the tools to nurture and care for the unique needs of raising a child with Down syndrome
Social Skills classes for teens with Down syndrome to prepare them for adulthood
Social gatherings and programming for adult self-advocates
