Hoover, AlabÂ – Down Syndrome and other special needs advocate Ashley DeRamus is encouraging all of her friends and fans to participate alongside her in a challenge to help raise awareness and funds for Down Syndrome.
The 2018 Stand Up For Downs Squat Challenge is designed to raise awareness for Down Syndrome and get people active in the meantime. Friends and fans can video their squats and tag a Facebook friend everyday for 21 days.

“I have accepted the Stand Up For Downs Squat Challenge 2018. I am doing 21 squats for 21 days to raise awareness for Down Syndrome and the need for everyone to stay physically active. Today I’m challenging you to join me. Video yourself doing squats, make them as easy or difficult as you want, be creative! Remember to copy and paste this entire paragraph everyday with your video. At the start of your challenge please go to www.ashleyderamusfoundation.
You can also do the squat on your own or host a kickoff event at your gym, business, school, or church. If you have any questions or to schedule Ashley to join you at a kickoff event email Lora Morgan, Director of Development at email@example.com
