Another Amazing Step Up 4 Down Syndrome Walk!!

By Uncategorized
Thank you to all our Sponsors, Members, Volunteers, and Staff for a fun and exciting Step Up 4 Down Syndrome 2023 Walk!! It was a hot one, but the atmosphere was full of laughter and smiles!
We thank all of our participants: members, teams, individuals and sponsors/vendors for taking the time to make the day so successful! We raised 77% of our fundraising goal! Our site will remain open for donations until 12/31/23, please help us reach our goal which helps our non-profit organization, continue to fund our Mission.
We cannot thank our official Volunteers enough for spending the day with us, helping wherever they were needed, AND to our impromptu volunteers who saw a need and filled it without being asked! Our set up went smoothly and clean up was made possible by a handful of dedicated helpers that left the park area pristine!
We hope that everyone enjoyed the day: the walk, the vendors, the entertainment and the company of each other! We thought we utilized this new area well and had many compliments on the set-up. We would like to get your opinion on how you thought it went. Join us for a Post Walk meeting on Monday, October 16th from 6:30-8:30 at our BGCDSO office located at 7301 NW 4th Street, Suite #103, Plantation, FL 33317, to discuss your likes and things that could use improvement for next year. Once again, thank you for a Wonderful Day celebrating our families and friends with Down syndrome!
