Downright Extraordinary Walk For Down Syndrome

Sunday, October 20, 2024

John Prince Park, Center Drive Pavilion, Lake Worth

You can make Donations for 2023 walk through December 31st.

Registration opens June 2024 












Thirty 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 in 2023 attracted 2500 people and largely supports the programs of the Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization.  We are looking forward  to celebrating 30 years of walking for Down syndrome. 

We hope you will be joining us on October 2oth!
