The Tricounty Down Syndrome Walk is a community event designed to celebrate those in Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens counties with Down syndrome. Individuals of all ages and abilities join us for a day of family-friendly fun.
Families tailgate while their loved ones enjoy carnival-style games, arts & crafts, inflatables, and snacks. After a short walk (one mile or less) our loved ones with Down syndrome head to the stage to show off their talents in our talent show. We conclude the day with awards for all of our VIPs and a dance party send-off.
It's the perfect opportunity to meet and mingle with other local families who have loved ones with Down syndrome. Money raised from the walk allows us to host other activities and events for the Down syndrome community. It also allows us to offer summer camp experiences and to provide scholarships for individuals with Down syndrome to participate in school and community activities.
