This is Julianna and Team Cupcake's third annual Buddy Walk! We are excited to welcome Maria as the newest member of our team! Big sister Julianna is already being the best big sister she knows how to be--always ready to offer a hand. Whether or not it is a helping hand is debatable... :)
Julianna is a bundle of energy always getting into something! She makes us laugh constantly--whether it is with her fake sneezes or her cheesy smiles whenever a camera is around or her two and a half year old "you can't tell me what to do"-type antics. Some of her favorite activities include climbing up the sliding board at the playground and "helping" to unload the dishwasher. Her big brother Ra-Ra (Rocco) can make her laugh uncontrollably but ultimately she is a Daddy's girl and has him wrapped around her little finger!
We hope you can join us at Baker Park on September 21st in support of Julianna and all individuals with Down syndrome. It is sure to be a good time!
For 2013, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 12th Annual Buddy Walk is reaching out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness about Down syndrome and funds for our mission. This year we're making it easier than ever to let all of our walkers, volunteers and supporters get involved and help make a difference.
We have partnered with CrowdRise to give everyone, whether an individual, a family, a group of families, businesses, schools or other institutions the ability to create their own fundraiser pages and establish teams to help us make our goal this year.
Our fundraising goals are to raise $75,000 and host at least 1000 walkers, you can are a key to that success!
Registration is very important and we ask that you take a few minutes to register and if you want to create a webpage for a new team or to join a team you would find it here.
Also, one more new feature, all of our “Buddies with Down syndrome” are free to register and will receive a special color shirt.
To register for the event, click on the "Join the Event" button at the top right and get started!
If you are not going to join us at our walk, but would like to help with the fundraising, please click on the "Donate to a Fundraiser" button to get started.
