The 2013 Step Up walk raised over $450,000 last year thanks to help of 333 walk teams and over 8,100 walkers.  100% of the proceeds stay in Kansas City to benefit the Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City and the vital programs the DSG provides to over 1200 families, 22 hospitals, 45 school districts and countless service providers in Kansas and Missouri.
