Step Up for Down Syndrome 5K and Family Walk is a fundraiser and awareness opportunity for the Down Syndrome Partnership of North Texas. We are raising awareness of the potential of all individuals with Down syndrome. We are raising money that will provide support, education, and social opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome and their family members, while also educating the community about what it means to have Down syndrome.
We will need volunteers to help set up, register attendees, be along the routes of 5k, and clean up.
