Dear friends and family,
The Agasie family invites you to join team Michael's buddies and participate in the 11th Annual Step Up for Down Syndrome, on October 13, Saturday, at 1:30 PM, at the Monona Terrace, Madison, Exhibition Hall B. Join our team and walk with us!
Why are we inviting YOU?
First, YOU are a friend! Even if busy lives and distance keep us from seeing each other frequently, YOU are in our list of friends. This is the perfect occasion to see YOU:) We would love to make new friends too and YOU are in this list.
Second, we are grateful to the Madison Area Down Syndrome Society (MADSS). Michael Joseph was born with Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) and we have been receiving support and information through MADSS and many families we met there. The MADSS reaches out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness about Down Syndrome and the meaningful contributions people with DS give to our community everyday. We need to spread the good news to all surrounding us.
Third, this is a wonderful opportunity to donate for a good cause. Donations are tax-deductible and benefit individuals who have DS and their families. YOU know one of the people who will benefit from your donation. Feel free to ask me more details about it.
COME AND WALK WITH US ON OCTOBER 13. There are many fun things to do at the Monona Terrace. If you are not able to come consider joining our team and donating the amount you can. Everything counts and we greatly appreciate your generosity!
Hope to hear from you soon. Be well, do good work and keep in touch.
Hugs and kisses, with love, (abraco apertado e beijos, com amor),
Bob, Isabel and Michael Joseph - the cutest Brazilian-American little guy in the world:)
