Avery's Army

Team Walk Years: 4
http://www.ds-stride.org/daytonbuddywalk/profiles/team/AverysArmyBuddyWalk2017

Welcome to our 2017 MVDSA Dayton Buddy Walk® team fundraising page!

We are participating in the Buddy Walk to celebrate Avery and individuals like her who were born with an extra chromosome.  Every day we are humbled by the things she does and the person she is becoming.  We knew from day one that she was a fighter. Born seven weeks early due to respiratory distress and poor growth, she came out screaming and ready to take on the world, one challenge at a time!  She overcame feeding struggles, open-heart surgery, full-time oxygen use, and other "minor" health issues along with facing delays in walking and talking.  With her amazing spirit and perseverence, she shines daily, loving dancing, preschool, playing with family and friends, music, and even therapy. She is the piece of our lives we didn't know was missing until November 26 2012, and we wouldn't change her for anything.  That being said, we truly appreciate the Miami Valley Down Syndrome Association for providing opportunities, offering support, connecting us to numerous families and resources, and supporting research for Down syndrome.  All of this helps Avery forge ahead and one day make her mark on this big world!

We’re really excited for this year’s Buddy Walk®! But, we could really use your help and support, too! We are walking to show support for our favorite buddies and more than 250,000 individuals with Down syndrome in the United States. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer to ensuring that every individual will have the opportunity to reach his or her potential.

By joining and/or donating to our team, you will be helping not only my friends with Down syndrome here in the Miami Valley receive valuable programs and services all year long, but you will also be supporting the advocacy and awareness initiatives of the National Down Syndrome Society.

Make your tax-deductible donation today and take the first step toward helping us achieve our goal.

Thank you for your support!

P.S. The Miami Valley Down Syndrome Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and donations are tax-deductible within IRS guidelines.
