BENEFITING: UPS FOR DOWNS NFP
ORGANIZER: UPS FOR DOWNS NFP
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
UPS for DownS is a parent directed, non-profit organization offering support, education, and encouragement for parents, families and others who love and care about persons with Down syndrome. Some ways that they provide families and indivdiuals with these amazing services include monthly support meetings, sibling education, parent coffee & playgroup, dual diagnosis resources, email groups and much more!
This year, I will be running the Chicago Marathon on October 8th for UPS for DownS. Anyone who knows me, knows that I can be a bit passionate about things that are close to my heart. Ever since I was able to work, I knew that I wanted to dedicate my life to working in the special education field. With my job as a pediatric occupational therapist, I have gotten to the opportunity to work with a great deal of children, families and educators. I have learned firsthand that providing families with the support, education and encouragement that they need is essential for the children we care about most to be able to reach their maximum potential. ACL's may be for the birds, bur raising money for these amazing families and their children is not.
Please help me raise money for this amazing cause. No donation amount is too small!
