Pitch In For Down Syndrome

Reading Time: < 1 minute 

On September 20, Oklahoma City’s Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark will come alive with a festival to raise awareness for Oklahoma families with Down syndrome children.

Even if you don’t know anyone with Down syndrome, the Down Syndrome Festival & 5K is a great way to support a local Oklahoma organization that deeply cares for Oklahoma children. Proceeds raised from the event will benefit the families served by the Down Syndrome Association of Central Oklahoma, an organization that works tirelessly to promote the inclusion of people with Down syndrome in the metro area.

Whether you go for the 5K, take the awareness walk around the ballpark or hang out for a day of moon bounces, live music and petting zoos, you will be joining thousands of locals in support of programs that encourage and uplift families. Visit them online to register and learn more about the event.
