Important Information Regarding Step Up and COVID-19

As you probably already know, we are gearing up for our 23rd Annual Step Up for Down Syndrome. We want to assure you that DSAM will take every precaution necessary to ensure your well-being. For that reason we have changed the walk into a picnic, which you can participate by having it at home, at your local park, or at Bert Ferguson in Cordova.

We hope these measures will alleviate any doubts or fears about participating. However, if you still find it necessary to stay at home rather than attend, we appreciate and understand your concerns. But we still want to encourage you to register for the event! Over the years, we have had hundreds of people register for the walk from all over the country. In fact, even if you do not attend, you can still participate by taking a one-mile walk at home, and DSAM will accept pictures of you doing so.

So, we want to encourage participation no matter where you are! Just remember, every dollar raised goes towards supporting and empowering individuals with Down syndrome and their families. We hope to see you on October 25th!

For more Information call 901-547-7588 or email admin@dsamemphis.org

 

The Mission of DSAM is to provide support and empower people with Down syndrome and their families. Funds raised by the walk are used for the following:

*Provide information and support to families of newborn babies with Down syndrome.

*Support our programs, such as: New Parent Brunch, Reading is Key, Adult Self-Advocacy, Job Placement, Pathways, Inclusive Summer Camp, and Tutoring Program.

*Conduct educational meetings, publish newsletters, maintain a website and social media platforms, and provide a networking outlet for families and self-advocates.

*Financially assist families and self-advocates in attending local and national conferences.

*Provide current, up-to-date information to professionals, families and educators.

*Advocate for the rights of all individuals with Down syndrome.
