Will You Step UP! for Down Syndrome Awareness Month?
Down Syndrome Queensland has released two videos to promote the Step UP! for Down syndrome events happening across Australia during October as part of Down Syndrome Awareness Month. The Step UP! videos released today were produced by Down Syndrome Queensland and students from the Griffith Film School.

Everyone is welcome to participate in a Step Up! event. Visit the Step UP! website at www.stepupfordownsyndrome.org.auto register for an event or to make a donation. In Queensland events are being held in Hervey Bay and Brisbane.
Step UP! events work to highlight the strengths and abilities of people with Down syndrome and the contributions people with Down syndrome make to the community.
Funds raised by Step Up! help the state and territory Down syndrome associations deliver services, support and advocacy to the community.
“Step Up! events are an opportunity for families to connect with each other. It’s wonderful to take the time to meet up with old friends, hear their news and raise funds at the same time. Right now, the focus for many families is on the change brought about by the National Disability Insurance Scheme,” said Darryl Steff, CEO of Down Syndrome Queensland.
“We thank the Griffith Film School students for their contribution and support. These videos capture the energy and spirit in our communities. We encourage everyone to watch and share them with friends and family,” Mr Steff said.
