Down Syndrome Awareness Month Fall Festival with Olympic Curlers!

October 2 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

You are invited to an afternoon of fun as we kick off Down Syndrome Awareness Month!

This fun event will take place at Ahuska Park in Monona from 12:00-2:30pm.

400 East Broadway
Monona, WI 53716

We are thrilled to have partnered with members of the US Olympic Curling Team, Becca Hamilton and Nina Roth, to offer you a chance to try the “coolest sport on ice”!  There will be ‘ice’  set up at the park and you will have the chance to have a hands on curling experience!

Here’s all the fun we have planned so far:  
    • Learn how to do the sport of Curling with  Olympic Team members Becca Hamilton and Nina Roth!
      • They are bringing faux ice to give you the whole experience!
  • All Star Cheerleading
    • Our friends at Fury Athletics of Madison are brining their all abilities cheer team, Inspiration, to show how fun it is to be part of this sport.
      • You’ll be in for a treat with the excitment and athleticism they bring!
  •  Activity Fair and Crafts
    • A team of OT students from Madison College are planning an activity fair that will include games, crafts and movement! (There’s probably going to be a dance party! )
    • We will have take home kits of things you can use to decorate for Down Syndrome Awareness Month.
      • You can even share with family and friends and local businesses!


This event is free to attend and will be weather dependent.

Social distancing is encouraged. Masks are not required.
