Thanks for Steppin’ Up

A huge thank you goes out to everyone who supported us by walking with, and donating to, our Step Up for Down Syndrome team! The support really means a lot to me!

We had nineteen team members, and lots of amazing donators! Thanks to everyone’s generosity, we were able to raise $1,530! All of the money raised for the Step Up Walk stays here in the Kansas City area and will benefit the Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City! It is an awesome local organization whose mission is to provide support and resources for individuals with Down syndrome and their families. DSG also seeks to provide the entire community with information and education to broaden awareness and foster positive attitudes regarding people with Down syndrome.

The morning started out a bit chilly, but really, given the sun shine and the slight breeze, we could not have asked for a more beautiful day. As long as you were wearing layers, it was enjoyable! Although everyone wasn’t able to make the team photo, I did make everyone present take off their outer layers and show off this year’s Chiefs colored t-shirts.

There are always must conquer activities and must devour foods – for kids and adults! I know the kids in our group enjoyed the bounce houses, pony rides, kettle corn, hot dogs and ice cream, met a clown or two and loaded up on sugar! The adults needed to carry the kids for a one mile stroll around Arrowhead Stadium as all the sugar sent the kids into sugar coma exhaustion! I guess that just means all the adults were able to burn off those bags of kettle corn, multiple rice krispy treats and cups of coffee that they had enjoyed!

All in all, it was a very successful, beautiful day filled with lots of love, family, friends and support for everyone in attendance! Thanks to everyone who helped make the day awesome!

And, big thanks to my Dad…most of these photos are his doing!!
