Step Up for Down Syndrome

Thank you again for your participation and support of Buddy Walk and Step Up and Walk last year! Thanks to your incredible online fundraising efforts, over $125,000 was raised in total to support the participating State & Territory Down syndrome associations. Without your support, this would not have been possible.

In 2013 we are hoping to smash that figure by launching a new national fundraising event – Step UP! for Down syndrome.

Step UP! for Down syndrome is a new event developed by Down Syndrome Australia, the national voice for people with Down syndrome and their families, together with its eight members – the State & Territory Down syndrome associations.

Together we have set an ambitious national online fundraising target of $200,000 and we hope we can count on your help and participation again to assist us in reaching this goal.

Already Step UP! for Down syndrome is shaping to be bigger and better this year with participation from every Australian State and Territory and the opportunity for national sponsorship. Please find attached your ‘Save the Date’ card with all the details.

We will be in touch regarding some exciting prizes for the top Step UP! fundraisers and the biggest teams!

The online registration and Step UP! for Down syndrome 2013 website have been launched.  This year, registering to attend the event and creating a Step UP! page are both part of the one simple online process.

Step UP! for Down syndrome will be held in the following NSW locations:

Sydney: Sunday 13th October
Wagga Wagga: Sunday 20th October 
Illawarra: Sunday 27th October

More details can be found on our Step UP! for Down syndrome website.

If you have any questions about this year’s event, please do not hesitate to phone (02) 9841 4404 or email

Thank you again. We look forward to seeing you there!
