It was a beautiful weekend for a walk. The sun was shining and smiles were not in short supply.
Our local Down syndrome community, Up About Down, got together this past weekend for their annual "Walk" in support of Down syndrome. Up About Down:
- is committed to enhancing the quality of life for those with Down syndrome and their families
- raises money for the local association so that they can provide events and activities for individuals in the community that have Down syndrome or the support system of those with DS
- raises awareness about DS in the community

This was our 1st year attending. The event was a huge success!!! The walk raised over $10,000 for Up About Down. We are really looking forward to being a part of this community in the years to come.
A very special THANK YOU to our friends and family who came out and walked with Hazel. I have said this a million times but it takes a village and we truly appreciate you coming out to stand with us. Y'all only make us stronger. Thank you!!!
