Step Up for Down Syndrome 2021

Sloane's Squad


One of Sloane's favorite phrases. Spend 5 minutes with Sloane and you will understand why she is so special. She can make anybody smile. Full of energy and happiness, we are so excited to continue watching her grow!

Welcome to the "Sloane's Squad" team page. We are raising funds for an event called "Step Up for Down Syndrome." This is The Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis’ (DSAGSL) biggest fundraiser, and it is such an amazing event. After teams raise funds for several months, the fund raising is concluded with the “Step Up” 1-mile walk. Thousands of people walk through Forest Park in STL and celebrate individuals with Down Syndrome after with a huge party! This year, we are  going back into full swing for this great event. 2 years ago we raised nearly $10,000! With COVID putting a damper on last year's event, we are hoping to surpass the mark we set our first year of participating.

DSAGSL is a fantastic organization that promotes and supports the wellness of those individuals with Down Syndrome and their families. While this is their biggest event for the year, they host many other events and activities through out the year.

It is still a little "up in the air" on how the walk may work out this year, but we are hoping to participate. Please consider joining us for the walk! We appreciate your donations - everything goes to DSAGSL! The donations you make on this page will go to DSAGSL in honor of our sweet Sloane! Love you guys, thank you!
