Step UP! for Down syndrome

Step Up for Down Syndrome logoOctober – Step UP! for Down syndrome

Step UP! for Down syndrome is an event to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October.

Major events are held throughout the month of October to help raise awareness of Down syndrome, and to raise funds for our important State & Territory associations.

To help us in the important task of raising awareness, and to raise funds for the Australian state and territory Down syndrome associations, we ask members and supporters to hold local fundraising and awareness events across the country. Even though Step UP! isn't until October, the best way to raise the most awareness, and funds, is to start your campaign early! To help you do this, we have created a suite of resources that you can download: 

A letter seeking donations that can be taken to your local businesses, and a thank you certificate is also available. Just contact your local association and they will provide it to you! 

Please visit the Step UP! for Down syndrome website for all the details of events in your area.
