Anyone can join in the festivities as Brevard County residents come together and “Step Up’ in support of county residents living with Down syndrome.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. and collecting $15 or more in pledges entitles you to a free T-shirt, participation in the one-mile advocacy walk along the Indian River and a fun-filled morning of face painting, pony rides, crafts and activities.

Pledges collected will help to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.

About 600 people are expected to attend. Participants will include people with Down syndrome, their families, friends, neighbors, teachers, co-workers and other supporters.
