Chapel Haven Schleifer Center is excited to partner with the Westville Village Renaissance Alliance to participate in the Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk on September 26, 2020 at 12:00pm.

Our team – the Chapel Haven Step Squad – will be walking from Chapel Haven, through the Westville neighborhood, and ending at Edgewood Park. At the park we will have music, a balloon arch, photo area, grab & go lunch and Down syndrome information goody bags.

This activity will be offered free as a recreation trip to interested Chapel Haven adults and staff thanks to underwriting support from the family of Tom, Rita and Josh O’Neill. We also encourage businesses in Westville, neighbors, friends and family members to join our team and walk with us or organize a walk on their own for a small donation on our team page, benefitting the Down Syndrome Association of CT.
