Thank you!

Thank you for joining our virtual StepUP! #21YourWay event 2020, helping raise awareness and more than $92,000 for the Down Syndrome Federation!

We were inspired by your #21YourWay challenges, which both celebrated the significant contributions people with Down syndrome make to our communities and, challenged stereotypes – helping bust some common myths and misconceptions about Down syndrome.

Your ongoing support allows the Down Syndrome Federation to continue their work in supporting and empowering people with Down syndrome to have full access to social and economic inclusion. If you would like to support the work we do, please click here to make a donation.

Watch the video below to enjoy some of this year’s #21YourWay highlights and be sure to stay tuned for #21YourWay 2021!


During October take part in the 2020 #21YourWay challenge, and celebrate with and fundraise for your local state or territory Down syndrome association during Down Syndrome Awareness Month.

#21YourWay is a national campaign hosted by the Down Syndrome Australia Federation raising funds for state and territory associations. We invite you to join in by choosing your own #21yourWay challenge or play along with your favourite #21YourWay Ambassador. Do it 21 times, do it your way!

All funds raised will support the Down Syndrome Australia Federation to continue their work in supporting and empowering people with Down syndrome to have full access to social and economic inclusion.

How It Works
