Walking Club

Walking Club partners individuals with Down syndrome with members of the community in an evening walk &/or run Monday evenings 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.

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 various walk &/or run events, and recruiting athletes for the UPS for DownS Endurance Team.
