Dear Family & Friends,
The Madison Area Down Syndrome Society is reaching out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness about Down syndrome and the meaningful contributions people with Down syndrome give to our community everyday. I am personally asking for your support for this cause.
This year's walk is extra special - we have two important announcements about MADSS and two national partnerships we are working on for 2013 and this walk is critical to pulling these off. You read the first announcement here. You can read the second, even bigger, announcement here.
I also want to invite you to join Nolan and our family at the
