Buddy Walk 2012!!! (Day 8 of 31/21)

We interrupt our gripping discussion of homework to show you our pictures from the Buddy Walk yesterday!!

The Buddy Walk 2012 was huge success on a perfect fall day.  As of Saturday there were 2306 registered walkers who had raised $170,000 for the Down Syndrome Association.  Cate's Crusaders raised $2,256 and had a team of 16 people include the 4 volunteers that my co-worker Laura recruited - a record for us in both regards!  My girls had a fabulous time.  Cate danced her little heart out, did every bouncy house twice, and walked the 1/4 mile by herself.  Lucy went for the playground after deciding the music was too loud to dance and the bouncy houses too crowded to play in but she did the walk on grandpa's shoulders .  It was a reaffirming day filled with amazing people and friends.  Thank you to everyone who helped make our day so incredible!  We are blessed to have such awesome friends and family.

  1. Fun!! Looove her smile. And you've got a HUGE team! Congrats on raising so much money! I'm looking forward to ours in a few weeks, although I've been a slacker in the fundraising department...
