THE STORY:

On September 17, our team will be participating in our 7th F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Buddy Walk! We are very excited for another walk and we cannot thank you enough for the love and support you have shown us since day 1!

The Buddy Walk is one of our favorite events of the year. We love having the opportunity to spend a fun filled day with our family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, educators, and therapists who come together to celebrate Avery and all individuals with Down syndrome. There will be activities the whole family can enjoy such as a petting zoo, moon bounces, fun games, entertainment, food, speakers, and much, much more! 

The BIG NEWS for Team Routzahn this year was the addition of Paige Katherine in April! Avery LOVES being a big sister, and she is truly wonderful in her role! Paige can't wait to attend her first Buddy Walk this year!

Avery ROCKED her first year of kindergarten and just started her "bonus" kindergarten year a few weeks ago! We have been so fortunate to have such a wonderful team of educators who welcome Avery with a smile each day! Avery LOVES learning and has become quite the reader! She loves books, dancing, and singing. "Signing Times" is STILL HER MOST FAVORITE SHOW EVER!!!! And she has a passion for Disney Princesses and Barbie dolls! We had a busy year with family & friends, dance class, swimming lessons, and horseback riding! Avery loves her pony "Pineapple", and we look forward to our fall and spring riding sessions through the Frederick Co. 4-H Therapeutic Riding Program.

As you all know, we are very passionate about our involvement with the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. organization and have witnessed firsthand how the Buddy Walk funds are used to educate and advocate.  Evan is now the President of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. It is the mission of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. to raise the awareness of Down syndrome through education in our schools, medical communities, business communities and own families. And we know the group is doing a fantastic job!

We invite family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. to join “Team Routzahn” in the 2016 Buddy Walk!!! We truly appreciate all of you who are kind enough to join our team and/or make a donation (donations made through this website are secure and can be used as a tax deduction) in support of awareness, acceptance, and the celebration of Down syndrome. We are very excited for this year's walk! Hope to see you on Sept. 17th!

Many thanks and much love!

 Katie, Evan, Avery, Jack & Paige
