Sunday is this year's Buddy Walk. If you haven't seen my previous posts on the walk, check out "My Wish" for the background info.
I have said it before, and will say it again, we feel incredibly blessed to have such a huge group of people walking with us. To me, it shows that we are surrounded by people who not only support and care for us, but also fully accept our daughter for who she is. Our team has now raised over $2000, and is made up of over 70 people. Wowza!
Some may ask, what exactly are we raising money for? Good question. Unlike fundraisers for things like Breast Cancer or Autism, we are not funding research to find a cure for Down syndrome. Down syndrome is something that can not be cured. The money raised goes to fund the many programs sponsored by Wisconsin Upside Down. Programs that increase awareness and acceptance of Down syndrome, as well as many social activities for individuals with Ds and their families. Check out their website for more about what they do.
We are looking forward to Sunday! Praying for nice weather.
To those joining us: Missy is going to send out an email tomorrow with all the pertinent info, watch for it, and thank you, thank you! See you Sunday!
