About StepUP!

During October we celebrate the 13,000+ people in Australia with Down syndrome for Down Syndrome Awareness Month.

StepUP! #21YourWay is a national fundraising and awareness campaign held in Down Syndrome Awareness Month every October. It celebrates the significant contributions people with Down syndrome make to our communities.

As Australia’s largest annual Down syndrome fundraising and community event, StepUP! #21YourWay is dedicated to improving the lives of people with Down syndrome. Join us this October for a variety of face-to-face and virtual opportunities to celebrate with and fundraise for your local state or territory Down syndrome association.

Every dollar raised helps your local association to continue their work in supporting and empowering people with Down syndrome to have full access to social and economic inclusion.
