Event: "Spirit Stepper" - Virtual Walker
"SPIRIT STEPPERS" FOR DOWN SYNDROME

Can’t Make it to the 21 Down Friends and Family Buddy Walk? Virtual Walking as a “Spirit Stepper” is meant for YOU! Be with us in SPIRIT.

There are lots of reasons why people can’t get to our Buddy Walk. It could be that traveling is difficult, or they have a previous commitment that day. Maybe they will be out of town on vacation or even shining in a pageant. It doesn’t matter, you can still help, be with us in SPIRIT, and you can do it from the comfort of your own home.

As 21 Down’s main fundraiser of the year, the Buddy Walk provides a large percentage of the needed resources for 21 Down to fulfill its mission. Every day we make meaningful strides to foster inclusion and to celebrate the lives of individuals with Down syndrome. There is no better way to show your support.

A “21 Down Spirit Stepper” is a virtual walker who is somebody who wants to fundraise for 21 Down but can’t be present for the 21 Down Friends and Family Buddy Walk itself. As a “21 Down Spirit Stepper - Virtual Walker you use your talents and passions to raise awareness and funds in your own way, but use the “Buddy Walk” and walk software as a vehicle to do so. Spirit Steppers can start their own virtual team, join a “real world” team that is at our Buddy Walk on event day, or they can just be an individual virtual walker.

All “Spirit Steppers Registered by 4/15/2020 will receive an event t-shirt via mail, and their photo will be displayed on the “Steppers in Spirit Board and honored at the 21 Down Friends and Family Buddy Walk. (Spirit Stepper Photos are to be submitted to 21downsj@gmail.com no later than 4/15/2020 to be displayed and honored at the Buddy Walk.)

Funds raised from past Buddy Walks have been used to fund a number of 21 Down programs, including assistance to new parents with welcome packs; educational seminars at quarterly dinner events with featured speakers; social events including Wildwood Beach Day, Bowling Bonanza, Family Fun Fitness Day, Storybook Land, “Rock Your Socks” World Down Syndrome Day Celebration, and several Dance Parties – Boo Spectacular, Jingle Jam with Santa, and Valentine Social; networking opportunities for moms and dads; and education materials and resources to the community. In addition, we provide many members with educational and recreational Grants and make donations to programs that support and advocate on the National and Local level of our adored members: National Down Syndrome Society, Challenger Sports, Special Olympics, ARC, Field of Dreams, and Hoops for ALL.
