Event Description:

Join the Down Syndrome Information Alliance as they unite to celebrate diversity and inclusion and raise funds at the 2020 Step Up For Down Syndrome Virtual Walk/Run on October 11th. Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, take the first STEP UP and donate or register today. This year, they’ve gone virtual. The walk or run can be done from home anywhere in the 8 Northern California counties they serve. 

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month and the goal is to raise awareness about the most common chromosomal syndrome in the world. 

1 in 780 babies is born with Down syndrome, and it is found in every race and socio-economic background. Down syndrome occurs when 3 copies of the 21st chromosome are made- hence our 3.21 mile run!
