2020 Virtual Event

About the 2020 Walk 

Due to the nature of the current COVID-19 health crisis and the vulnerability of our loved ones with Down syndrome, the Michiana Down Syndrome board decided to cancel this year’s in-person event. We understand that this is very disappointing to many of you and your loved ones. We look forward to 2021 and we will have plenty of time to plan for it and make it better than ever. In the meantime, we hope you will join our fundraising efforts during the month of October to help support the many things the group does to support the local families and individuals with Down Syndrome.

Don’t forget to set your social media post to public and share your pics using #MichianaDSWalk – we want to see how you are celebrating this year!
