Step Up for Down Syndrome 2021

Jacob's Journey

Here is a great picture of Jacob before prom a couple of years back; where has the time gone?  Speaking of time, our team, Jacob's Journey, is back at it for the 19th year raising funds for the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis (DSAGSL) which I am honored to serve as Board President.  We are setting our goal again at $10,000, and believe we will get there with everyone's help.  During the pandemic, fundraising has been tight as we have not been able to have in-person events, but hopefully we are getting closer to this changing.  This event is the biggest fundraiser for our organization as it raises approximately 1/3 of the total revenue of our organization, which in turn provides necessary services and programs to individuals with Down syndrome and their families.

Our staff at the DSAGSL has done an incredible job of continuing to serve our families by developing a series of on-line programming during the pandemic, and I cannot thank them enough.

We appreciate all you have done for us in the past and hope you will assist us again this year.

Thank you!
