Save The Date!! 2011 Buddy Walk

It is hard to believe that it is already September -- which means that it is almost October which is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month.

What an amazing year Anna has had!  She learned to walk.  She is going to pre-school.  She tells me to "Stop Mommy! No! No!" all the time =)  Our little girl is growing so fast!

On Saturday, October 22, we will be walking in the Northwest New Jersey Buddy Walk to show our support for Anna, and the more than 350,000 individuals with Down syndrome in the United States.

We are asking you to Buddy Walk with Anna to make a difference for people with Down syndrome in our community and help the National Down Syndrome Society create change nationwide.

NOTE: I do not have registration information at this time -- but will post it and send an email as soon as I do!!

The walk is less than a mile – so anyone can do it! Last year, the Anna’s Banana Pants team raised over $2500 and had over 50 people who came out to show their support and to to walk with Anna. What a blessing it would be to exceed both of those numbers this year!

Last year, Anna got to walk in the Buddy Walk for the first time by herself.  This year we are fully expecting her to run the whole way! =)  We would love to have you there to help cheer her on.

So, put Saturday, October 22 on your calendar, and I will send registration information to you as soon as I have it!
