Connor's Crew

Team Years: 3

Welcome to our 2018 Toledo Buddy Walk® fundraising page! On Sunday, October 21st, at the University of Toledo, we are walking to show support for our child and more than 400,000 individuals with Down syndrome in the U.S.  Every dollar raised brings us one step closer to ensuring that every individual will have the opportunity to reach his or her fullest potential.

Our fundraising efforts will support local programs and services provided by the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Toledo, as well as National Down Syndrome Society advocacy and public awareness initiatives that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.

Make your tax-deductible donation today and take the first step toward helping me achieve our goal. Thank you for your support, as we celebrate the 2018 Toledo Buddy Walk®!

We’ve been dancing to “Rockin around the Christmas Tree” every night and I’ve made up my mind that it’s our new tradition until they refuse to dance with me. I’m hoping it’s never! ❤️🥰 #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndrome #upsyndrome #theluckyfew #t21

I had to catch him as he launched out of the chair, head first, for his 8 month chair pictures. If that doesn’t describe what this last month has been like I don’t know what will! Happy eight months, Granny boy. We love you ❤️

Perfect weather to take a trip to the zoo! Connor loved the lights and his new fave, the ‘sssssss’ snakes! The aquarium still holds the top spot, though! He would have stayed there all night. The first weekend of December did not disappoint! 🎄#nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #downsyndrome #upsyndrome #t21 #dsdn

Sickness has hit our house so I’m reminiscing on healthier times 😆 capturing a smile like this is near impossible these days. Not because it doesn’t happen, but because he won’t sit still! 🤷‍♀️ #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #downsyndrome #upsyndrome #t21

Cuteness overload 🐬🦔 we were just gonna hang out at my moms and pass out candy, but Connor was loving his costume so we decided to go to a few houses. He put each piece of candy into his bag and held his bag the entire time! I was shocked 😂 happy Halloween 🎃 #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #downsyndrome #upsyndrome #t21 #dsdn

What is it about a nickname that makes me feel so happy? Connor is “bubs” and this little guy is my “granny” 🤷‍♀️😍 he melts my heart every day and when I call him Granny it just feels right 😂😂 hopefully a new nickname will stick before he goes to school 🤷‍♀️👵🏻 anyone else a nickname person? Our dogs name is Foxy but we’ve called her “pooch” for years and I’ll spare you all the nicknames I have for my husband 😂😝

Down syndrome awareness month: A study of 822 people who had a sibling with Down syndrome reported 96% had affection toward their sibling. 94% expressed feelings of pride. Less than 10% felt embarrassed by their sibling with Down syndrome. Grant loves his older brother and I love watching their relationship grow. 💙💛 #nothingdownaboutit #proudbrother #theluckyfew #downsyndrome #upsyndrome #t21 #homiewithanextrachromie
