Hawkeye Area Down Syndrome Association

This is HADSA's Annual Fundraiser!

It supports our efforts to carry out the mission of the organization which is to to provide education, support and advocacy to those individuals, their friends, families, and professionals in eastern Iowa who are blessed by Down syndrome. We hope that through our efforts, we can enhance the quality of life for all individuals with Down syndrome. The operational costs of HADSA consist of administrative costs, educational seminars, Family and New Parent Outreach,  activities for the Walk, scholarships, holiday parties and social activities for members, families, and professionals in the community.

We can't do it without you!  Please sign up for a volunteer shift the day of the walk and share the volunteer sign-up with friends and family.  We look forward to a fantastic walk!
