The Up With Down Bike Ride
Our annual Up With Down Bike Ride is scheduled for Saturday, March 19th, 2016. This ride was created to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day and to support the Fun Coast Down Syndrome Association while having fun and raising awareness about Down Syndrome.
All proceeds will go to FCDSA, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. We hope to raise enough money to host a bike camp for people with Down syndrome. There will be a 20 mile, 60 mile, and 100 mile ride. Early registration has started now and is only $30 until December 31st. Register for the Up With Down Bike Ride.
Fun Coast Down Syndrome Association Mission Statement
The mission of this organization shall be to provide support, education and resources to individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and community, in order to foster an environment in which individuals with Down syndrome are included and valued as contributing members of our society.
The Fun Coast Down Syndrome Association was started in October of 2002 by Paula Wilburn in an effort to provide services and support to families in Flagler and Volusia counties. Most of us are parents, but we are also grandparents, friends, and professionals. We encourage and support families by offering services and advocating for people with Down syndrome.
Our main focus is education. Educating our kids and the community, as well as providing the tools necessary for the schools to better serve children with Down syndrome.
