Sharing has been serving individuals of all ages who have Down syndrome since 1991 and alway for free.  Register online <www.sharingds.org> to create your own team to walk in honor of someone you love who has  Down syndrome.   This is our biggest fund raiser so we can continue to provided services to family for FREE. The SHARING DOWN SYNDROME WALK is to promote positive acceptance and awareness for people with Down syndrome. This fundraiser allows Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona  to continue our family support by providing monthly educational meetings, in English and Spanish, hosting new parent gatherings, and personally delivering new parent support packages. We provide community support by providing birthing hospitals in Arizona folders containing important information regarding Down syndrome and our organization for social workers to give to newly diagnosed parents.  We bring awareness to the medical community regarding the importance of properly delivering the diagnosis in a positive manner to the parents. This event is for all ages and abilities and  will  begin with a light continental breakfast followed by a short stroller friendly walk around the Tempe Diablo baseball field.                                    

Post walk activites will include fun and games with bouncers, rock wall climbing, carnival games, and dancing to the music of DJ Ron, silent auction and much more. Also, meet  Dora the Explorer and Sponge Bob. Stop by our exhibitor booths to learn more about the activities, resources, and services available in our community. Please come and join us if you have Down syndrome, if you love someone who does, or if you want to show your support.
