Go Speed Chaser!

It's almost Buddy Walk time here in Atlanta and we are SO excited to have Chaser's Racers participating again! October 7th is the big day and we can't wait!
If you've never attended a Buddy Walk, it is such a fun time for all families - a huge picnic on the lawn with live music, BBQ, and jumpy houses - all cumulating with a short walk with medals for all the kids! The proceeds go to support the National Down Syndrome Society and the Atlanta Down Syndrome Association, which both work to enrich the lives of those with Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) in areas of education, health, and social/family relationships.

These pictures on this post are from each of the past three years that we have done the Buddy Walk - 2009 through 2011. It's so neat to see how much bigger the kids are each year and to think of the relationships we have made along the way. Our family has had quite a journey and there will always be challenges that we will face together, but it is so great that we can get together and have fun and celebrate the accomplishments of Chase and others with Trisomy 21. We have been so blessed by this little guy and I'm so glad we have an event just to celebrate him!

If you're in the Atlanta area (or willing to travel), sign up to join our team! Or if you feel called, you can donate to our team instead. Either way, we're so thankful to have such supportive family and friends and so very excited for the fun that is right around the corner! Check out our team page HERE.
