Monday, March 21st the 5th Annual ‘Walkin’ In Memphis: Down Syndrome Awareness Walk’ hosted by the Greer Family

Each year on March 21st (World Down Syndrome Day), Josh walks for 14+ hours across the Memphis area, formally stopping at 21 well-known Memphis attractions to take pictures with supporters, self-advocates, sponsors, news outlets, local politicians/celebrities and many others. At each stop, Josh raises the global symbol for Down syndrome, a blue and yellow butterfly, to take a picture in support of Down Syndrome awareness and inclusion!

Around 5am on Monday, March 21st, Josh will start walking from The Big River Crossing and trek 21 miles all across Memphis!

The goal each year is to raise $21,000!!!

All proceeds go to the Down Syndrome Association of Memphis & The Mid-South (DSAM) so they can continue to enrich & expand programs in the Mid-South community for the individuals & families they serve!

Easy! On March 21st:

  1. Put on your best blue and yellow gear, take some selfies and tag us on social media with #WIM2022!
