Please Join Our Team!

It's that time of year again, and I've finally gotten off my duff long enough to set up my Buddy Walk Team and donation pages. For those two or three of you that read this blog that are not parents of children with Down syndrome, the Buddy Walk is the largest fund and awareness raiser of the year for both the national and local Down syndrome associations. The Down Syndrome Association of Northern Virginia is holding our local Buddy Walk on October 24th at Bull Run Park. If you can come that day, we'd absolutely love to have you join our team--it's a lot of fun! If you can't come, I still ask (humbly) for any donation you may be able to give. Supporting the Down syndrome associations helps to provide opportunities for people with Down syndrome to reach their full potentials. I have high hopes for my daughter and her future, and I feel so fortunate for all of the support we have received in the last 3 years, and for all of the programs that make so much possible. Please click on the link in my sidebar to go to my Sweet Pea United team page and help out.

Becca, I'm one of the two or three moms you mentioned. How far is your event from Hampton Roads area? We just moved to VA 2 months ago.

Becca, I feel out of the loop on this. Mostly because it's my fault. Was wondering if I could join your team this year. I would love to come. Is it to late to join this?
