StepUP! celebrates the 13,000+ people in Australia with Down syndrome.

Through September and October, StepUP! events bring people together to socialise, challenge themselves and enjoy activities and entertainment whilst raising public consciousness of diversity within the community.

As Australia’s largest annual Down syndrome fundraising and community event, StepUP! is dedicated to improving the lives of people with Down syndrome. People with Down syndrome possess many wonderful talents and qualities, but most importantly they want to live a meaningful and productive life like everyone else!

Every dollar raised by StepUP! helps your local Association to provide support, services and information to empower people with Down syndrome and their families.
