A Little Something Extra

DS Awareness Walk - Fox Cities, WI

Wednesday, Sept. 22, is the last day you can register to walk with us in Neenah and get a t-shirt.  You can still register up to the date of the walk but you won't get a shirt.  We would love to have more people walking with Micah's Mavericks!  If you'd like to join us, click on the Donate button on the FirstGiving widget to the right here on the blog (from that link, you can join the team, with or without donating).  If you want to walk, please do let me know, even if you can't sign up online.  I'm working on making some hats for our team.

The same link can be used if you'd like to donate to our team, Micah's Mavericks.  After what our little guy went through back in April, we are continuously thankful that we are able to walk WITH Micah and not in his memory.  The money raised through this walk will go toward raising awareness and education in the local community.  The local organization provided us with our first information about Down syndrome.  It was given to us after we received Micah's prenatal diagnosis.

This is the first year there will be a walk in the Fox Cities (WI).  Though we no longer live there, we want to support that community and give back.  We're also thrilled that Rachel Coleman, hostess and creator of Signing Time, is doing a live performance.  Micah is completely addicted to Signing Time DVD's.  We haven't counted exactly, but he must know over 150 signs (ASL) thanks to Signing Time.

We set a fairly high goal for our team this year.  Can you help us meet it?


P.S. I promise to post some new photos soon.  And please pray for Micah as he is feeling rather crummy these days (lower GI and upper respiratory issues make for a very unhappy boy).
