Our 2nd Buddy Walk

Thank you all so much for supporting us, walking with us and thinking of us on Allie's 2nd Annual Buddy Walk. We had a beautiful - but windy and cool - day. Allie was all decked out in her Chicago Bears cheerleader outfit that her Aunt Maureen had brought her last year. It fit wonderfully this year! Aunt Maureen and her friend Dave drove for 20 hours to spend the weekend with us and walk with Allie. A couple of Allie's classmates, their Mom's and some friends came and walked with us, too! We also were reunited again with 3 other of Allie's NICU buddies.... my, how everyone is growing! We had some friends and some coworkers as well. And, not only did we have some of the best humans walking with us... we had 4 canine buddies walking with us! (oops... sorry, Nicky, you got left at home again). We really had a wonderful time and have raised nearly $2,900 thanks to all of you!

Please continue to spread the word that Down syndrome today is not the same as DS from years ago. These individuals can and will do so much more than ever before!

Dear Allie:

We are so glad that your 2nd Annual Buddy Walk went to well and so much money was raised. We love you and miss you and look forward to seeing you and the other 3 in your family.

Love, Grandpa
