Just like that, it's been a year! And what a year it has been. We've seen Eva grow from this little baby infant to a one year old princess racing around like nobody's business, pulling herself up on her own two feet, and babbling about all of the fun she is having. Just da da da da all day! She is definitely a Cuellar/Velez!
Well, we just finished celebrating Evita's first birthday, so you know what that means, right? We are getting close to Race4Respect Day! :)
As many of you know, in order to raise awareness in our area and support those living with Down syndrome, our family participates, fundraises, and volunteers in the Race4Respect and this year will be no different. The Race4Respect will be held on Saturday, June 4th this year and we would love it if you joined us! The Race4Respect is a collaborative effort between the eight Down syndrome affiliate groups that surround Washington, DC to raise Down syndrome awareness.
This year, we also have a team fundraiser! All raised funds will benefit Devenio, inc. Devenio inspires community building through partnerships that provide lifelong opportunities for people with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities. They create and facilitate collaborative projects, programs and events directed at education, awareness and increasing availability of experiences. To join our fundraising team, click the big FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN button and you'll instantly have your own fundraising page as a part of our Team. You can also donate directly! Will you help us in supporting Devenio and all of the wonderful things they do?
Thank you all so much for your love for us and for supporting our little Evita!
With so much love,
Bianca -Titi B :)
