Welcome to the Callen’s Crusaders Team Page!
Our team honoree is Callen, or CJ for short, is a spunky, lovable kindergartener who has Down syndrome. Callen loves giving hugs and playing with his siblings. He is a fun loving 5-year-old, but Down syndrome causes some challenges. The Down Syndrome Association supports families like ours through all the challenges, which is why this walk is so important to us.
The Step Up for Down Syndrome walk is the largest yearly fundraiser for the DSA. Funds raised are used to run programs to educate parents, connect individuals with Down syndrome with others their age, and prepare them for adulthood. The best part is that all the money they raise is used to help families in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area.
We hope you’ll join us for this fun, family event and raising money for this great cause!
The mission of the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis is to benefit the lives of people with Down syndrome and their families through individual and family support, education, public awareness and advocacy.
