Where is the Sharing Down Syndrome Walk held? What can I expect?

The annual walk has historically been held at Tempe Diablo Stadium in Tempe, AZ.

For 2021, our annual Sharing Walk will be held on September 25, 2021. Participants will enjoy food trucks, live music (DJ), entertainment, special guests and more celebrating people of all ages with Down syndrome.

How do you support families over the years?

After we meet the new parents and provide them with initial resources and gifts, we keep in contact with them through emails, phone calls, social events and parent support meetings (parent forums).

At the support meetings (parent forums), we focus on a particular topic most parents of a child with Down syndrome may need addressed. We invite guest speakers who advise about estate planning, special needs trusts, educational advocacy and navigating the IEP (Individualized Education Plan) and more.

We host special annual events each year as a way of keeping up with our new families and friends who have embarked on this most adventurous journey of parenting a child with special needs. We host family friendly Easter parties, Christmas parties, and a fun, interactive and inspiring annual Sharing Walk for people of all ages and abilities.
