31 for 21: Step Up For Down Syndrome Walk

Day 25:  It was a month ago (yep, I'm a procrastinator), that we participated in our first Step Up for Down Syndrome walk.  The walk was held on a beautiful Sunday morning in Denver's City Park.  The Walk had about 3,300 people walking, and raised more than $233,000.  There aren't too many pictures of Claire from the day because her I didn't see her much of the walk.  Her cousin took the stroller, and I didn't see her until we got back to the tent.

Our walk does a tent village, and it made it easy to turn the walk into a full family day.  We brought lunch, and the kids were able to run around in the grass.  I didn't take the time to walk around a look at many of the other tents, and I really wish I had.  It would have been a great way to get ideas for our next walk and just to see some of the other families we knew were at the walk.


  1. It looks like a gorgeous day! That is a really big turnout. It is heartening to hear of so much support.

  2. Next year we'll attend Denver for sure! We did the Buddy Walk in Colo Spgs this year and Taeya won the youngest baby award. It was a wonderful time to connect with other families and get our feet wet in this whole new world!

  3. Next year, I already told Jax he needs to be good, because in five years, we haven't made a buddy walk yet!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what is on your mind.
