On Saturday, October 7, Down Syndrome Association for Families of Nebraska (DSAF, dsafnebraska.org) will be hosting a Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk at Antelope Park. All are invited to join this annual event for a morning of celebrations with food, drinks by Rock’n’Joe Coffee, live music, face painting and more.

Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does or just want to show your support, take the first step and donate or sign up to walk with DSAF today! Help them spread the word. To register for the event or make a donation, visit www.ds-stride.org/dsafstepup.

The Down Syndrome Association for Families formed in 1995 as a way for parents to network and share the accomplishments and challenges of their children. Many families who have, or are expecting a child with, Down syndrome don’t always have reliable support or access to accurate information about Down syndrome. DSAF provides that support and information.

Down Syndrome Association for Families of Nebraska recognizes that every person with Down syndrome is an individual who has a unique purpose and set of abilities. It is their mission to provide support and a positive vision for the future for individuals with Down syndrome and their families, friends, educators and professionals who share in their lives.
