THE STORY:

Jenny Achterberg wrote -

Welcome to our Fundraising Page!

Three years ago, we were blessed with a beautiful, sweet, loving baby girl with smiling rainbow eyes. We named her Caydence and she just happens to have Down syndrome. Caydence had a rough start; she spent the first month of her life in the NICU at St. Mary's hospital and when she was six months old she had open heart surgery to repair the heart defect she was born with. Besides some feeding issues, Caydence has recovered wonderfully and today is a happy healthy little three year old. In fact, she just started Preschool and absolutely loves it!

On Saturday October 13th, we will be participating in the Madison Area Down Syndrome Society's Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk. This year the event will be held in downtown Madison at the Monona Terrace and we will be walking around the capitol square to spread awareness about Down syndrome to the whole community.

We would love to have your support in our fundraising effort. All proceeds go to support the Madison Area Down Syndrome Society (MADSS). It is an organization that is very dear to us. MADSS assists families like ours with great resources, educational presentations, social events, and financial support.

To join us the day of the walk you can register and join our team by selecting "REGISTER". To help us in our fundraising effort you can click on "DONATE".

We really appreciate any amount you can contribute!

Thank you all so much <3

- Josh and Jenny Achterberg.
