Step Up for Down Syndrome 2021

Carsen's Crew



Thank you for Stepping Up for Carsen!

This is our 1st year participating in the Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk, in honor of our super duper sweet, Carsen.

Carsen is 18 months old and full of silliness. He absolutely loves giving kisses, playing with his baby brother, Puppy Dog Pals, ranger rides, bubbles, FaceTime calls, strawberries, reading books, giggles, baths, jello, snuggles, and getting into trouble.  Overall, he's just a fun-loving little dude and such a joy to be around - which is why we want to celebrate him by supporting other individuals with Down Syndrome.

The Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk is a 1-mile walk, held on June 13th at 10 AM in Forest Park, followed up with a celebration with food, entertainment,  activities, and more! Carsen would love for new and old friends to join him on this walk! 

Here is a bit more information on the support this organization has given us already:

The Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis area continues to be an amazing support group for those with Down Syndrome and their families.  For our family, specifically, they have sent us a celebration basket upon Carsen's postnatal diagnosis. This basket included kids books, educational books, educational packets for family members, cute onesies, blankets, and fun toys for Carsen. They also put together an event where photographers volunteered to take family photos for individuals with Down Syndrome and their loved ones.  They even put together a calendar full of these photos - which also included a full schedule of virtual events, as well.  AND for Carsen's 1st birthday, they mailed him a birthday gift - lots of fun sign language books! They really do go the extra mile to make all of the local individuals with Down Syndrome and their families feel supported.

All of the money raised, will go to the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis. Show Carsen some love by donating all you can to his team and/or joining us for the walk :)

Your support is making a difference for individuals with Down syndrome and their families in our St. Louis Community!
