Steps to Independence Walk/Run 2018

River's Diamonds


My name is River Ann Duckworth and I want to welcome you to my team page.  My family and I are once again taking up the challenge to raise money for the group that gives so much to me and my friends: Down Syndrome of Louisville (DSL).  The annual walk, Steps to Independence, will be held at Waterfront Park on the 29th of September 2018.  Festivities and registration will kickoff at 7:00 a.m. on the Big Four Lawn.

We are asking you to help by supporting our fundraising efforts with a donation. Your gift will make a difference not just for me and my family, but in the lives of many children like me and family's like mine!  It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause - you can make your donation online by simply clicking on the link at the top of this page; or by ordering one of my team t-shirts  at  Any amount, great or small, helps provide the local Down syndrome community with: developmental therapy for children, family resources and support, learning resources for children and adults, work placement for adults , and so much more. 

Thanks to the participation and contributions of people like you and the resources that provides, my friends and I are way ahead of where children like me were even a decade ago.  I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
