NDSS Your Way goes to College! College students can create an "On Campus" event, to raise money and awareness about Down syndrome on your campus! Your fundraiser can be a specific event or an online campaign. Examples of on campus fundraisers are: sports tournament, bar party, food cook-off or tasting, dance marathon or other "thon" type of event, variety show, school activity, or social media campaign. #college #fundraising #makeadifference

In 2010 Lawrence Goldstein and his wife, Lindsay Heit, started the Cooper Classic, a softball tournament in New York City, to honor their nephew, Cooper, who has Down syndrome. The event was so successful that they held the second annual Cooper Classic in the fall of 2011, and have raised almost 13,000 dollars in total! Click the photo to learn more about NDSS New Ideas.
