Team Cora Bean is Buddy Walking Again

We are excited to be planning for our second Buddy Walk, which will take place on Saturday, September 29th.

Last year was amazing.  We had about a dozen walkers on our team and raised over $1200.00 for the Northwest Down Syndrome Association!

This year we're off to a little bit of a slow start, with all our vacationing this summer.  And sadly, it seems that many of our Team Cora Bean members can't make it in person this year, but will be joining us in spirit.

We're happy to be getting together with our local T21 families to celebrate our little wonders.  And I'm excited to be more involved with the local Ds group in the past few months.  I've started hosting the monthly playgroup for kids ages 0-5 and have participated in some other fund-raising activities and educational seminars that the NWDSA puts on.  It is a fabulous group, providing resources, informational support, seminars, and social and emotional support.  And it's been a great way to meet other families like ours.

If you're going to be in Portland on September 29th, we'd love it if you'd walk with us in support of our beautiful girl, and in support of the many individuals with Down syndrome that are such blessings in our lives.
