Member Summer Picnic
DSAWM are invited to join us at Tunnel Park in Holland for a day of friends, food, and fun in the sun at the Member Picnic! We’ll have a delicious grill out, plenty of games, and playground and beach access (don’t forget to bring your swimsuit and a towel if the weather is nice). Click here for more details.
Families raising children with Down syndrome aged 5 and younger are invited to celebrate their beautiful new additions with DSAWM at the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum. Oh, Baby is a great opportunity for parents and siblings to connect with other families experiencing Down syndrome and learn about all that DSAWM has to offer. Click here for more details.
Step Up for Down Syndrome
Step Up For Down Syndrome is the largest Down syndrome awareness event in Michigan and DSAWM’s biggest fundraiser. This year’s event will be held at Fifth Third Ballpark and we will be turning it up to 11 with our theme “Rockin’ an Extra Chromosome.” Click here to register or donate.
During the summer months, the DSAWM office is open Monday-Thursday from 9am-5pm and closed on Fridays. Summer hours are effective Memorial Day weekend, beginning May 24th, through Labor Day.
