THE STORY:

Hello. We're Kara and Andy Yermak.  On 3.21.2017, in recognition of World Down Syndrome Day, we will begin a 321 mile journey with a very special purpose - to promote awareness about Down syndrome (Ds). Our journey is called 321 Miles for 321 Smiles.

We will be walking, hiking and/or running 321 miles. Each mile that we traverse will be dedicated to a person who has Down syndrome.  Each person's photo and the reasons that make them smile will be featured on our personal blog, www.honoringjensen.com. Our goal is to show others that individuals with Down syndrome are more alike than different.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When we first learned that our son Jensen would be born with Down syndrome, we had several misconceptions about Ds and the life of a person with Ds. Through our research, we gained a whole new perspective about Ds.

Our son Jensen was born on August 5, 2016, and sadly, died the next day due to severe congenital heart disease. Jensen's life taught us so much about life, love and the true meaning of acceptance and inclusion. We are compelled to advocate and raise awareness on behalf of our son. His life will continue to live on through us.
