Calling all Steppers...

The weather is getting cooler and fall is in the air.  That means more outdoor fun, football and of course the Step Up for Down Syndrome.

The Kansas City Step Up Walk!

We are amazed at how God continues to bless us.  First with Alayna & LC being NICU buddies, born one day apart and the amazing friends He placed in our lives in Courtney & Justin.  Last year Jace was added to the mix now Dariya has come along to add to the party.   

We hope you are able to join us for this awesomely fun day in which we celebrate all our sweeties with that extra 21st chromosome!  You can join our team and/or donate up until the walk day but if you want a cool tshirt with our team name on it make sure you register by September 30th!

100% of the proceeds stay in Kansas City to benefit the Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City. The DSG serves over 1100 families and partners with 22 hospitals, 45 school districts and countless service providers in Kansas and Missouri.
Every dollar raised helps the DSG continue to provide vital programs and services offering educational and social support to people with Down syndrome, their families and the professionals who serve them. Important work waits to be done to enhance research, education and advocacy programs. Your support is critical in making these programs a reality.

Are you interested in helping with a RR table at the buddy walk? Heather McFarland and I thought it would be nice to have some RR info (already on its way from RR) Also Heather had the great idea if RR families wanted to hang a rainbow flag, or fly a rainbow balloon at their shelter/area at the walk.
Amy Allison and Amy Stoll are fine with this AS LONG AS NO FUNDS/DONATIONS ARE SOLICITED it must be informational only.
Any thoughts? Kim Knipp
