Family and Friends,
This year, Team Movin’ for Max will be participating in the 1st Annual Fox Cities Down Syndrome Awareness Walk at Riverside Park in Neenah, WI. It will take place on Saturday, October 2nd 2010 @ 11 am.
We are so excited for the 1st Annual Down Syndrome Awareness Walk this year! To be involved with creating such a wonderful event has been a big part of my life this past year. I can't wait to see it all come together. There is going to be a ton of fun carnival games, face painting, a petting zoo, live entertainment, food, and I can't forget a booth of educational information on Down syndrome!
Our first goal for the 1st Annual Down Syndrome Awareness Walk is to raise awareness. I want everyone one in this community to know that Max in so many, many ways is no different then any other toddler his age... he takes pride in the things he does, he is almost walking and looks around the room to make sure everyone is watching and clapping, he gets hurt feelings when his sister takes his toys, he loves to play, laugh... and right now loves, loves Mickey Mouse.
Our second goal is to raise donations. Whether you decide to walk with us in Neenah and/or make a donation to support Down syndrome awareness, you will be making a difference for Team Movin’ for Max and the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin – Fox Cities.
Your donations will be making an immediate impact on the lives of families in our area who receive a diagnosis of Down syndrome. Your pledges will go directly to DSAW-Fox Cities, a local volunteer-run organization that provides information, resources and opportunities for families of individuals with Down syndrome. DSAW-Fox Cities understands the value of those with Down syndrome in our lives and our communities. Our family is an active member of this group and we are greatly benefiting from their support.
Thank you so much for your support,
The Pingel Family
