Step Up for Down Syndrome
Aquatic Systems is proud to be a multi-year financial sponsor of this event (previously known as the Buddy Walk). The annual event is held in October at Markham Park in Sunrise, FL. The walk and subsequent 5K run begin at 8:30 AM.
In addition to the regular sponsorship, the company covers the entrance fees for all employees and their families in the Pompano area who wish to participate. Each year at least 10 of our employees and family members show up in support of the cause. Pictured here are the company’s participants, along with Founder and CEO John Gardner.
The event was established by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. It is a walk that anyone can complete. No special training is needed. The walk is held by the Broward Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization, and includes a light breakfast, lunch, and many other fun activities for the kids.
