27 years ago, a group of 60 people gathered in a park to do a small walk and promote the abilities of people with Down syndrome.  None of them would have guessed that over a quarter century later, the walk would have grown into an event that attracts two thousand people and largely supports the programs of the Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization.  We are excited to celebrate 27 years of walking for Down syndrome.  We hope you will be joining us on October 10th!
