DSAGSL has many different types of events! The biggest event of the year is the annual Step Up for Down Syndrome, a support walk, fundraiser, and family fun day. Start a team & fundraise in honor of loved one, and then come out and enjoy the activities in June at Forest Park! Step Up has a lot to offer including the ever popular Bubble Bus, rock climbing wall, giant slides, snow cones, train rides, and more! Visit the Step Up Page to learn more, and visit our Facebook Photo Album to see pics from SUDS 2018.
Fundraising for Step Up for Down Syndrome doesn’t only make you feel good, it also earns you tickets to Walk in the Park! Each year the Cardinals host DSAGSL at Busch Stadium for an day of awareness, community building, and fun! Check out the Walk in the Park Page for more information about the 2018 game! Missed Step Up? No problem! You can purchase ticket packages to Walk in the Park which includes t-shirt, pep rally, wrist band to walk the warning track, and baseball ticket.
October is an important month for DSAGSL because it’s Down Syndrome Awareness Month! To celebrate Down syndrome, as well as raise awareness in the community, DSAGSL hosts many events and activities in the month of October including DSAGSLTrivia Night, the 21 Suns All Abilities Yoga & Marketplace, and DSAGSL Rocks! Performances. We also have “We Love Someone With Down Syndrome” Support Signs you can display in your yard to raise awareness in your neighborhood, and we partner with local restaurants for fun Dine Out for Down Syndrome events. We hope you’ll participate in Down Syndrome Awareness Month 2018 by coming to one of these events, eating at one of the participating restaurants, or displaying a support sign in your yard… Or maybe all three!! Visit the Down Syndrome Awareness Month Page for more information.
Family-focused events and social events happen frequently throughout the year at DSAGSL including the Holiday Party and the Friends for All Seasons Family Picnic, and more! Check our Family Events Page or DSAGSL Calendar for details!
DSAGSL is also so fortunate to have many amazing community partners that help organize fundraisers like Relay and Run for 21, Birdies & Bass Golf Tournament, and the Young Friends Board Volleyball Tournament.
So many ways to enjoy, support, and get involved with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis. Interested in volunteering for one of these events? Contact Volunteer Coordinator, Abigail Beckord at (314)-961-2504 or firstname.lastname@example.org
