Up and Down Aotearoa 2021

$10,200 of $10,000 goal
Given by 148 generous donors in 7 weeks

Support our virtual mission around NZ to raise funds for Kiwi kids with Down syndrome.


We're doing a virtual run/walk/swim/wheel/pram around Aotearoa New Zealand in 2021 to celebrate some amazing Kiwi kids with an extra chromosome 21, also known as Down syndrome. Support us on our mission to get around the whole country as a team, stopping by to say hi to some of the 200+ Kiwi kids UpsideDowns supports.

Every dollar raised will go towards providing essential speech and language therapy for Kiwi kids with Down syndrome!

WE DID IT!  24 March 2021

Thank you so much generous donors, enthusiastic mission participants, and supporters of all kinds. Together we made it all the way around NZ and we reached our fundraising goal of $10,000!! That represents a year of speech therapy for 10 of the 217 kids we support - what an amazing achievement! This was the first time we've been able to hold an event since 2019, and we are so grateful to you all for embracing the virtual for a very special World Down Syndrome Day. Thank you all so much <3

Love from Sarah and the UpsideDowns team
