Join Decoding Dyslexia-MO For A Picnic And Awareness Walk 

Come join Decoding Dyslexia Missouri, in Kansas City, as we celebrate dyslexia awareness with our annual Step Up for Dyslexia Walk. The walk will begin with a picnic and take place at beautiful Harrison Park on Sunday, September 23rd, 2018. Various tables will be set up with information about dyslexia.

Decoding Dyslexia Missouri is a grassroots parent-led movement with a three-pronged mission to educate, advocate and legislate on behalf of those with dyslexia. We are focused on linking families to resources, support, and educational interventions for dyslexia. Our goal is to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children and inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia in Missouri.

With your support, this event will rally families, friends and supporters of DDMO as we work together to achieve our mission and create change for children and adults with dyslexia in our community. All proceeds will directly support DDMO’s mission.

Frequently Asked Questions


Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a race? No. This is an awareness walk for fun and fellowship. There will be no timing or placing.

Do I get a t-shirt? If you register before the deadline (August 31, 2018) for either walk or the youth registration, you are guaranteed a t-shirt. Anyone who registers after the deadline is not guaranteed a t-shirt.

When do I receive my walk t-shirt? If you register before the deadline (August 31, 2018), you will receive your shirt on the day of the walk at the registration/check-in table.

I signed up, but now I won't be able to walk/run. Can I get a refund? We are unable to provide refunds for registration fees. However, if you signed up before the deadline, you may have someone else pick up your t-shirt on walk day. Please email with the name of the person who will be picking up your shirt.

Who can participate in the events? All Step Up for Dyslexia Events are open to all ages; however, register your children ages (1-17) through the Youth Registration Tab for all walk events. All adults ages 18+ need to register through the 2 Mile Run/Walk and 1 Mile Fun Walk Tabs. The Picnic is a free event open to all ages. Bring your own picnic basket or buy from New York Tom's food truck which has reasonably priced, family friendly food.

I see that children 10 and under are free. Do I need to register them? Children aged 10 and under can participate in both the 2 Mile Run/Walk and the 1 Mile Fun Walk for free without being registered for either event, but they are not eligible for a walk t-shirt. If you would like for your child to receive the walk t-shirt you will need to complete the youth registration form for them and pay the registration fee. The registration deadline in order to receive a t-shirt is August 31, 2018.

Will the walk be cancelled if it rains? The event will be held rain or shine. If weather conditions become unsafe the day before or day of the walk, the walk director has discretion to cancel the event. If the walk is cancelled Decoding Dyslexia Missouri will make a post on their website ( We will be unable to provide refunds due to cancellation as this is a fundraising event.
