Inclusion Walk

Saturday, October 13, 2018 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Inclusion Walk

Location: Arvest Stadium in Springdale
Description: This year's Down Syndrome Connection of NWA Inclusion Walk will be held on Saturday, October 13 from 10 am - 1 pm (the walk itself will begin at 11:30 am). The Inclusion Walk features music, entertainment, games, arts & crafts, vendor booths and more while we raise awareness for Down syndrome in our community! The participants will gather for a fun, 1-mile walk around Arvest Ballpark in Springdale, AR. All individuals with Down syndrome will receive a medal after finishing the walk!!!

Also, new this year, the walk will feature a silent auction! Come ready to bid and take home some amazing items!

Each year all the families of the Down Syndrome Connection of Northwest Arkansas (DSCNWA) gather their family and friends, to take part in a wonderful awareness walk. This event is the main fundraiser for DSCNWA, and it enables us to continue to grow the programs and services that we offer to our local families.

The Inclusion Walk has three primary goals:

To promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome
To raise funds to support our local families (by providing education, support and family events throughout the year)
To enhance the position of the Down syndrome community, enabling us to positively influence local and national policy and practice.
