Calling all Riley's Rockstars new team members and returning team members! We are so happy to have you join us !! The Step Up For Down Syndrome Walk is the biggest fundraising event for the Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida and one of my favorite events! The event will take place on Saturday October 22nd at Lake Eola in Orlando. It is a fun filled day of celebrating that extra special chromosome.
I step up for Riley because she proves to me every day how strong,smart and worthy individuals are with Down syndrome. Most of you know that Riley was a surprise baby with a surprise diagnosis. At first it was very hard for me to accept that this was our new life, that Riley was "different" than what I expected. But boy was she the best surprise ever!! Riley has been such a blessing to our family. We have met so many wonderful people along the way who have become family to us.
Riley is the sweetest, most stubborn, strong willed, smart, sassy girl. She makes me laugh like crazy and turns a bad day into a good day ! Riley loves everyone she meets, she doesn't know stranger. When you meet her you can't help but love her !
I am excited to have you all on our team and celebrate our girl, but also to help us raise money for the Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida. This organization goes above and beyond to help our kids. They are like a family. They provide so many different scholarships to help families in need of therapies, medical, emergency relief. They have classes and activities for individuals of all ages. They support our families and encourage our kids to achieve their goals. I am proud to be a member of this organization.
So I thank you once again for donating, for taking time out of your day to come and celebrate my girl, for loving her and supporting us. Thank you for showing up! I cannot wait to see everyone!!!
