The Global Down Syndrome Foundation launched the Dare to Play Football Camp and the Dare to Cheer Camp for individuals with Down syndrome in the summer of 2010. The camps have served 500 people with Down syndrome. Each year, the camps include three practices that culminate with a Game Day at Valor Christian High School. During the game and at halftime, the campers get to show off their skills to an audience of more than 400 people.

“Sebastian had an amazing time at the camp and still talks about his pal Marcus. Our entire family enjoyed Game Day immensely! I could go on and on about the awesomeness of the day.” – Jane Hoppens

Football players from Valor Christian High School serve as “Pals” for the Dare to Play Football campers, while members of the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders help teach cheerleading routines, drills and dance moves to the Dare to Cheer campers. On Game Day, they are joined by celebrity coaches such as current and former Denver Broncos Ed McCaffrey, Orlando Franklin, Malik Jackson, Al Wilson, Mark Schlereth, and Brian Dawkins.

Join in the festivities this year! Game Day runs from 10:30am to 2:00pm on Saturday, June 20, ending with a Community Celebration Party!
