    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.
