Down for a Ride!

Down for a Ride!

Sunday, June 11, 2023

The "Down for a Ride 2023" motorcycle run is coming up on SUNDAY, JUNE 11th! See information about the ride below. We encourage CIDSO members to join us at the end of the ride at OZ'Z Bar in Creve Coeur, beginning at 3:00. Its so helpful to visit with those who register for and participate in the ride -- some will not know anyone with Down syndrome. It's a chance for us all to be ambassadors and spread awareness. While it may not sound like a family-friendly event, I can assure you that all are welcome and will be comfortable there. We will have tickets for our members to have a sandwich and a (non-alcoholic) beverage at the event.

VOLUNTEERS from CIDSO are needed to help with registration in the morning and for the silent auction/raffles at the end. Please contact Angela Hedican (  for more information.

Calling all Homies! Join us for a 125-mile ride to raise awareness for Down Syndrome sponsored by Walters Brothers Harley Davidson. All proceeds go to help Central Illinois Down Syndrome Organization (CIDSO so they can continue their mission of supporting and providing educational services to families who have been touched by Down Syndrome in the McClean County Area.
