I am FINALLY getting the walk info posted and emailed to everyone. Below is the email I sent to friends and family. If you are in the area, we would love to have you walk with us, or support Claire as a virtual walker. We are looking forward to a great day filled with fun, family and friends!
Friends and Family,
This year is our 1st annual Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk! Please join us for a fun-filled day benefiting a great cause! Mile High Down Syndrome Association (MHDSA) needs our help to promote acceptance of all people with Down syndrome and raise much needed funds for their vital programs. All of the funds raised from this event stay right here in Colorado!
The Step Up Walk will be held Sunday, September 26 at City Park, Denver. The days activities start bright and early (7 am!) with a pancake breakfast, followed by the walk and entertainment. There will be face painting, games and a band throughout the morning. Bear's Buddies will have a team tent set up, and picnic lunch after the walk. We hope you are able to join us a for a day of fun! We have been inspired and blessed by Claire's extra chromosome, and can't wait to show the world that she is "more alike than different"!
Your involvement in the Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk -- by walking with Claire or by sponsoring her -- will make steps for a brighter tomorrow for all individuals with Down syndrome.
Thank you for your support!
Darren, Melissa & Claire
