2013 Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk

The W Family would like to invite you to participate in the 11th annual Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk on October 5, 2013.   


How can you help?  Many different ways!  You can support Ben’s Brigade by walking or donating.  You can sign up to do either by going to our team fundraising page by clicking here. Adults are $20 and Kids are $10 and if registered by September 15th you get a free t-shirt with your registration. If you can't be there the day of the walk, you can still support Ben by being a virtual walker.  
Students and faculty of Elmwood - Murdock School can register for free by joining the Elmwood Murdock School Team by clicking here. (School team registrations need to enter a coupon code of "school" and do not get a t-shirt so wear school colors.)


The walk is 1 mile and starts at Antelope Park (by 33rd and A streets), but there will be so much more than just the walk!   There will be food and fun for the whole family with the String Beans, Der Viener Schlinger, Face Painting and much more.


August 31st is the deadline for the Early Bird Fundraiser.  For each $200 we raise by that date, Ben gets a fact poster displayed along the walk route (limit 3).  So far we have enough pledged to earn one poster.  It would be great to earn all 3!
September 15th is the deadline for getting a free t-shirts with your paid registration.  So don't wait, register or donate today. 


 We are so proud of Ben and all that he has accomplished in the last year.  He loved going to preschool and playing T-ball and working on his reading skills.  He also enjoyed cheering on his brothers at all of their sporting events.  Ben is looking forward to starting Kidergarten at Elmwood Murdock this fall.  Thank you to everyone who has donated in the past and to those who are planning to donate this year.  You are helping to make a difference in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome in our community.


We appreciate everyone's support.
Thank You!

The W Family
