Today's tid bit is an update on the impending Buddy Walk that our committee has been working diligently to put together! What a TEAM we have!!! With awesome, committed, passionate, and motivated people - YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD! And, that is a fact.
At last check we had over 500 registered participants! That is so far the largest crowd ever at a Capital Region Buddy Walk!!!!!! We could expect upwards of 700 or more! YEAH!
Each pre-registered participant will receive a Buddy Walk t-shirt - this is the FIRST year that t-shirts have ever been provided at the Buddy Walk!!!!!! A special thank you to my friend Lisa Payne, for making this possible. Each pre-registered family also will receive 2 Down Syndrome Aim High Resource water bottles! Thanks Vicki!! And, if that wasn't enough -- each pre-registered family will go home with a Thank You bag - filled with products from Bumble and Bumble New York, Wella, Buddy Walk Kozzi's and much more!!! These bags are so full - we couldn't fit one more thing in them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Isn't this awesome!!! There is much more to tell you about what's happening on Sunday but that's for tomorrow. You don't want to miss it!
http://www.dsahrc.org/ to sign up! Why should you sign up even if you won't get all these great gifts? There is lots more fun and freebies to be had!!!
These bags are the work of Kathy Smith, Nathan's aunt and Bernardina Torrey, one of my best friends - As you can see, the bags are beautiful - each was assembled with a great deal of love for Nathan and each family touched by Down syndrome. It took a great deal of effort to secure each of the donated items and even more time to assemble them. Do you know they tied bubbles on each of these bags for the kids! And, there are 250 of them!!!
Do you know the best part about this?!!!! Kathy and Bernardina can't wait to do it again next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God Bless both these women.
