Step Up for Down Syndrome!

September 27th, 2015

Como Park, Midway Pavilion in St. Paul

Hey folks, we have been doing this for a long time. Celebrating that is. For 18 years we’ve gathered, rain or shine, heat or cold, boom or bust to celebrate all that our family members and friends with Down syndrome have accomplished and all of the love and labor we have invested to help them.


What was once just a nice idea is an event and that event is now a tradition – and what a tradition!

The largest walk held annually in St. Paul Como Park they say. Maybe 8,000 happy people gathered in Como Park. Our own tent city. Live music. Marching bands. Clowns, face painting, slides and moon walks. Hamster balls. And, of course, there’s food. Bag lunches are provided with registration and plenty of food vendors with items for purchase. Or, bring your own food.

And there are all of us. Thousands of really happy people and every one of us glad to see you.

If you haven’t done it for the past 18 years, maybe it’s time you join to us for the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk, Sunday September 28th, Midway Park Pavilion, Como Park, St. Paul with registration starting at 10:30 AM.

Walk starts at noon; lunch served at 1:00.

On September 27th we’ll celebrate the accomplishments of our friends and family members with Down syndrome AND raise awareness of Down syndrome in our community. For the past 18 years that has meant a fun-filled day like no other, but topping our amazing Step Up Walk record is really up to you. Bring your family, friends, neighbors, classmates together for a fun and festivities filled day!
