WLNS TV 6's Sheri Jones is a Lansing broadcasting gem. She is a genuine person who is deeply woven in the fabric of our community. This isn't for show. She cares and it shows. Sheri will be the emcee for Step Up for Down Syndrome this year!

It happens next Sunday September 15th on the campus of MSU. The 5K Run/walk starts around 9:30 AM by the MSU Auditorium. The Walk will be around 10 AM.

Sparty will also be there. Sparty has cut down on his appearances this year and you won't see him as much, but he will be here firing up the Spartans. No one attracts a crowd like Sparty.

Last year, my daughter Nugget raised the most money and was the Grand Marshall of the walk. It was a very proud moment.

We ask that our Down Syndrome kids be included in your lives and we invite you to be included into ours. It's a great opportunity for people to get educated about Down Syndrome.

If you want to run or walk, awesome! Even if you want to help out and not be active, come out and cheer people on. You can also make a donation by clicking here.
