The 23rd Annual Up With Families Weekend is April 8th through the 10th at the Ramada Inn and 5 Sullivan Brothers Convention Center in Waterloo.

With help from community donations and volunteers, Up With Families is able to provide the weekend at a low cost for the participating families. The total cost per family including lodging, meals, materials and recreational activities is $450, but each family is only asked to provide a $40 registration fee.

Because the event is volunteer-driven, the weekend is limited to twenty families with children who have disabilities and special needs.
