First of all I want to give a huge THANK YOU to our donors and friends who signed up to join us at the walk this coming weekend! You have been such a blessing to us and all the people with Down syndrome and their families. We are so excited to see you and celebrate. The dates for the team captain to pick up team t shirts is this Thursday and Friday over at Arrowhead. I will be driving over to get them. Since Thursday and Friday there is no school due to Parent Teacher conferences it won’t work to drop them off at school. My plan is to either bring them to the walk and have them at our tent so you can pick them up or I can drop it off at your house. Let me know what works for you. It looks like the weather will be nice for the walk , anywhere from 60-79 degrees! Dress in some layers. 🌞🌤🕶
