This is the inaugural softball tournament and The Upside’s first fundraiser! The Upside, Advocacy, and Advancement for Individuals with Down Syndrome.
The Upside has the goal of helping to support new parents that receive a birth or prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome in the Wichita Falls area. Long term, we hope to provide welcome baskets and first-call opportunities for those individuals who may be confused or scared about what a Down syndrome diagnosis means for their little ones. We hope to be able to provide age-appropriate support groups as well as community education about Down syndrome to ensure full inclusion for children with Down syndrome in our community.
