It has been a big first year for Caydence and what a better way to celebrate than to Step UP for Down Syndrome! This year the Step UP for Down Syndrome Walk will be held on Saturday, October 23rd at the Alliant Energy Center Exhibition Hall. We are inviting all our friends and family to attend. There will be music, mascots, bounce houses, a balloon artist, face painting, children's craft area, a silent auction, lunch and of course the ceremonial walk! There has been less than ideal weather the past few years, so this year the walk activities will be held indoors, but as long as the weather cooperates, the walk itself will be held outdoors. :)

Last year Team Caring 4 Caydence raised a whopping $2,429.00. So this year our team goal is to raise $2,500! All money goes towards the Madison Area Down Syndrome Society which is an organization that is very dear to us.

To join us on the day of the walk you can become a Caring 4 Caydence Team Member by registering online. The cost is $20 per adult walker and $10 for walkers 12 and under. Make sure to register by Oct 1st to be guaranteed a Step UP for Down Syndrome Walk T-shirt!
