Nothing Will Stand in Our Way: DSG to Host 2020 Step Up for Down Syndrome Walks

Since March, DSG has been re-thinking how to safely host our fundraising events due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. One thing is for sure, we WILL come together—virtually, and hopefully in person—to celebrate your loved one with Down syndrome!  DSG is planning a hybrid approach to ensure everyone can be involved at their own comfort level.  

While we are optimistic that we will be able to gather together in-person for our Walks, we are unable to predict whether the state and local regulations will place restrictions on group events due to COVID-19.  We want you to know how important it is for us to continue this celebration! No matter what the future holds, we are certain we will come together this fall—although it may look and feel a bit different.  Our goal is to provide the best experience possible for both types of events! 

Create your walk team today!

  • Our Mission is Growing: your past support has helped our dream to serve people with Down syndrome—of all ages—come true! As we expand with our new Lifelong Learning Campus, we will now have the space to offer services tailored to each stage of life, from birth through late adulthood.
  • You’ve Always Stepped Up: our mission needs your support now, more than ever! With the challenges non-profits are facing during this global pandemic, your support will have a direct impact on the people we serve now—and into the future!
  • Make a Lifelong Impact: the lasting impact of your support will help us expand our services within our Lifelong Learning Campus. Soon we will have the space to host therapeutic play groups, dedicated teletherapy rooms, and so much more! We will have dedicated space for our Adult program and social enterprises, such as a coffee shop for our teens and adults to practice the skills they learn in our programs.

Registration for the Step Up Walk is $25 per person ages 13 and up, $15 for guests ages 3-12 and guests 2 years of age and younger are free.  The registration price includes a Step Up Walk t-shirt, lunch, and entertainment.  

We are looking forward to celebrating your loved one with Down syndrome on Saturday, October 24, virtually and hopefully in person at Arrowhead Stadium.  

Thank you for supporting our mission, the families we serve, promoting community involvement and encouraging a lifetime of opportunities for people with Down syndrome.

Why Participate?

Without your support, we wouldn’t be dreaming this big with our families! Please consider supporting the families we serve—and will serve—now and into the future. Every gift matters—as we know that it takes a village to change a generation of lives!


How Your Support Makes a Difference

DSG's long-term goal is to positively change the statistics and life trajectory of people with Down syndrome. We are re-imagining the possibilities for those we serve. As the sole organization in Kansas City dedicated to serving individuals with Down syndrome, DSG has the responsibility of becoming a congregator of community assets to ensure access to opportunities, programs and services that previous generations have not experienced.
