Agenda:

8:30 am Registration opens – Families can enter the stadium and enjoy food trucks, inflatables, entertainment, and visit with exhibitors and entertainers.

9:30am The official program portion of our event begins – We will honor our country with the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of the National Anthem – performed by members of our community with Down syndrome.  We will distribute awards to citizens who support people with Down syndrome through employment, education, social work, and volunteerism.

The Sharing Walk begins immediately following the awards ceremony – Led by the Grand Marshal (the top fundraising team), the walk will start near the stage and continue around the stadium, ending by the food trucks in the registration area.  This is a half-mile walk. Strollers, wagons, and wheelchairs are all welcome on the walking course.

10:45-12 pm Family Fun – Families can enjoy their time together with games, inflatables, and entertainers at the event.

The fundraiser allows the organization to continue to offer FREE support services to all families in Arizona who have (and love) a person with Down syndrome in their lives.
