• Step Up for Down Syndrome 2017

    By: Nicolette Christopher


    WFTV 9 Family Connection is ready to Step Up for Down Syndrome! Join us on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Lake Eola as we celebrate individuals with Down syndrome. After a walk through downtown Orlando we will enjoy on-stage entertainment, a kid's zone with bounce houses and carnival games, and some great prizes for our participants.

    The Step Up for Down Syndrome celebrates October as National Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and provides a public platform for advocacy. The one mile walk around Lake Eola in Downtown Orlando includes music, games, and community resources. The goal is to promote acceptance and inclusion; to raise funds necessary to develop innovative and effective programs locally; and to enable us to positively influence disability policy.
