Risk Millions for Fame and Bragging Rights Against the Best in the Business!
Experience the thrills of a simulated stock market while making a very real investment in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome!
At Action 21, you and your team will go head-to-head with the heavyweights of the financial industry, buying and selling shares in fictitious companies to see who can make the most money without going bankrupt in the process. News bulletins throughout the evening fuel the trading frenzy as competing tables brave the ups and downs of the market and vie for the coveted Action 21 trophy - and bragging rights for the next year.
As you play, you’ll be investing in something more significant than just stocks and bonds. Through Action 21, a deposit is made toward a brighter future for individuals with Down syndrome - a compounding investment which pays lifetime dividends to so many families.
Innovative in nature, wide in scope, and entertaining in practice, Action 21 events have collectively raised over $5.2 million, and indirectly, much more. Make dreams come true - invest today.
Invest in the Future of Individuals with Down Syndrome
