We are still raising money for Down Syndrome Indiana, in Sophia's name, and by clicking on THIS LINK, you can go to our fundraising page and make any amount of a donation that you would like. We are only $175 away from reaching our team goal, can you help us reach it???
Down Syndrome Indiana is dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with Down syndrome through education, support and advocacy. Proceeds from the walk help fund Down Syndrome Indiana programs and services that help individuals with Down syndrome and their families. Some of the programs and services offered are:
* New Parent Information and Resource Packets
* Support for research and advocacy
* Financial assistance for youth who attent Camp Hi-Lite
* Informational and Educational Conferences
* Parent Support Groups
* Mom's Night Out Events
* Family Picnics
* Self-Advocates meetings and social activities
Down Syndrome Indiana also contributes to our own local support/play group right here in Vigo county, the Wabash Valley S.T.A.R.S. With the financial help from Down Syndrome Indiana, our group is able to meet about every other month and plan fun and exciting things for the whole family to participate in. It has been a great way for our family to connect with other families right here in our own community! Think about making a donation today!
