Thank you for visiting our event page. We are so excited for our 20th Annual Down Syndrome Awareness Walk at Myrick Park on Saturday, October 8!! 

With the support of our generous friends like you, we were able to award multiple grants to families in need around the state, send new and expectant parent packs at no cost to parents who received a Down syndrome diagnosis, and so much MORE in 2021! WOW - thank you! We rely on the incredible support of our community to make DSAW-La Crosse's services happen.
