2021 Virtual Event

About the 2021 Walk 

While the current COVID-19 health crisis had improved, our volunteer board did not feel like there was enough time to plan and safely host our annual fundraiser in-person. Also, we have taken seriously the vulnerability of our loved ones with Down syndrome. The Michiana Down Syndrome board decided to host a virtual event again. We understand that this is very disappointing to many of you and your loved ones. We look forward to 2022 and the opportunity to have the event in-person. 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!
