Will you Step Up for Down syndrome this October?

Step UP! celebrates The 13,000+ people in Australia with Down Syndrome

October is Down syndrome awareness month and throughout the month, Step UP! events across Australia will bring people together to walk, socialise and enjoy activities and entertainment, whilst raising public consciousness of diversity within the community as well as raising funds to support people with Down syndrome and their families.

We are holding a number of separate events across Queensland during October, with events confirmed for Hervey Bay and Brisbane.  All events will have entertainment, a fundraising walk, food and fun!

You can register for an event and create a fundraising page here

We'd love for every family to target to raise over $200 and every individual over $100.  Let's see if we can build on the success of our Bridge to Brisbane fundraising and beat the other States and Territories!!Prizes will be given for the biggest individual and family fundraisers.

Where do the Funds Go?

Funds raised by Step UP! Brisbane will go towards developing Health and Fitness programmes as well as supporting playgroups.

Funds raised at the regional events will stay in the regions to provide support, services and information to empower people with Down syndrome and their families.

If you want to see what other States and Territories across Australia are up to and how their fundraising events are going, have a look at the Step Up for Down Syndrome website.
