Welcome to Designer Genes Down Syndrome Group
Designer Genes' mission is to provide information, resources, advocacy and support to individuals with Down syndrome, their families and their communities.
The steps listed in our mission lead us as we strive to reach our vision of a community where all individuals with Down syndrome have opportunities and resources to live independently and to fully participate in all aspects of their communities.

Kick off Down Syndrome Awareness Month by joining us for the Buddy Walk. Help raise awareness of the abilities of individuals with Down syndrome and support the work of Designer Genes Down Syndrome Group and the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) by enjoying a day of walking with new and old friends.
This year's walk will kick off with the UNI Sparkles cheerleading squad and includes a silent auction that includes tickets to Walt Disney World. The police department will also be on hand to help create IDs for children.
Individuals with Down syndrome get in free and receive a free t-shirt. $5 per person or $20 for families of 5 or more (immediate family only).
