Walking Club partners individuals with Down syndrome with members of the community in an evening walk or run/walk every Monday evening during summer months. Our walk begins at 7 PM at Volkening Lake in Schaumburg. All ages - and strollers - are welcome. After walking, participants socialize with a healthy snack. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
The purposes of Walking Club are numerous: providing opportunities for community members and individuals with Down syndrome to exercise and socialize together, promoting healthy habits, preparing for the Chicago SuperRun 5K in August, and recruiting athletes for the UPS for DownS Endurance Team.
