Team Budd Zoo 2013 SOFT Stroll for Hope

Thank you for visiting our Team Budd Zoo fundraising page!

We are trying to raise money for SOFT (Support Organization for Trisomy 18, 13 and Related Disorders) through the Stroll for Hope event.

We will be participating in the 3rd Annual Stroll for Hope event on Thu, July 18th at this year's SOFT conference in Providence, RI.  Funds raised go towards helping SOFT provide its resources and services to many families. SOFT is a 501(c)(3) organization.  You can view some of those resources on their website:  

Please consider supporting Team Budd Zoo at this year's Stroll for Hope!  Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

THANK YOU from Team Budd Zoo!


My personal plug for supporting SOFT (

I encourage anyone facing a journey with a SOFT child to join this organization (it's FREE!) because they provide help and support for families, have medical advisors who are experts, have books available for care of trisomy kids, provide a quarterly magazine (SOFT Times) full of informative articles, life experiences, practical information, summaries of latest research articles, tons of inspiring pictures of living and thriving children, and much more. They have a new family packet that is amazing.

Most important - this is a volunteer run organization! Even the medical advisors are volunteer. All money donated to SOFT goes to subsidize conference costs, create informative materials for families, education opportunities, support of trisomy-related studies, and so many other good programs! It DOES NOT pay for salaries or projects in conflict with the purpose of the organization.

I have found their materials to be awesome resources for our family and for Rebekah's doctors. The books include info like typical problems, recommended medical treatments, and growth charts for trisomy kids.

Thank you for your love and support of Rebekah, and children like her!
