Celebrate diversity and walk for a good cause by joining STEP UP for Down Syndrome, a 1-mile fund-raiser at the Memphis Botanic Gardens. The event takes place Sunday, October 20th, from noon to 4 p.m. and includes games, food, entertainment, and more. This year’s special guest is Chris Burke, who starred as “Corky” on the hit TV series, Life Goes On.
Burke performs uplifting acoustic music with his band, Chris Burke with Joe and John deMasi. The trio met years ago at a Long Island summer camp, where Joe and John worked as music counselors. Since teaming up, they’ve recorded more than four CDs, spreading their message of love, inclusion, and celebration at hundreds of venues across the country. “We all have disabilities,” says Chris. “It’s what we do with our abilities that counts.” Chris is living proof that if you believe in yourself, anything is possible. Come celebrate life.
