Duluth Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk

12th Annual Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk

Pioneer Hall, DECC, Duluth, Minnesota

Registration begins at 12:30

Walk begins at 1:30

Join us on September 29th, 2013 for the 12th Annual Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk. We will be stepping up in a very public proclamation of the pride we have for our friends and family members with Down syndrome and the commitment we all share to bringing all into life’s mainstream. As always, we will have the walk itself, face painting, games, food and, best of all, hundreds of people having a great time.



  • Register by September 6th for tshirts – deadline extended!
  • Have donations turned in by September 20th to win an iPad


The Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk is the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota’s single most important source of financial support. Thanks to what you and thousands like you did last year, we raised more than $200,000 to support Association activities, such as our Regional Conference, Grandparents and Youth & Adult Conferences, financial support to more than 23 parent groups, new and expectant parent packets, books and videos for new and expectant parents and more.

Online fundraising is easy! Just go to dsamn.donorpages.com/StepUpWalkDuluth2013 and follow the links to create a personal fundraising page in less than 5 minutes and start raising money faster than through offline efforts. It’s free and you can include a personal message, an optional photo or video, personalized web address and message to and about your friends and family. You can even get widgets for your Facebook page or blog to let your friends and family know about your fundraising efforts.


It is not a requirement to raise funds, but we’d sure appreciate it if you’d gather pledges or make a donation. And again this year, to show our deep appreciation, all who raise $5,000 or more on behalf of the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota will have their names along with those who raise the same amount or more entered into a drawing for an Apple iPad. All you have to do is have your donations recorded on your fundraising page OR turn your pledge sheet into the Down Syndrome Association offices by September 20. Donations received after that date, while deeply appreciated, will not be counted toward the drawing minimum.


You may register for the Step Up Walk online at dsamn.donorpages.com/StepUpWalkDuluth2013 or by downloading the Step Up brochure above and mailing in your registration. Please note that this year we will be charging for tshirts – this ensures that more of your fundraising dollars go back in to supporting people with Down syndrome and their families.
