Support TEAM HERO and DSAM!

Friends and family,

We are very excited to have our third trip to the Buddy Walk in a couple weeks. The Buddy Walk is an exciting event where families and friends of people with Down syndrome come together, show support, and raise awareness about Down syndrome. This is especially timely, as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, has a 4 month old baby with Down syndrome. We hope this brings more attention to wonderful people like Maeve, and educate the broader public about the potential good people with Down syndrome can have in our lives, communities, and the world!

You may have noticed the fun graph, on the right side of our page, tracking how much money we've raised. It's been stuck on 21% for a couple weeks now. So we would love you're help on getting to that magic number of $500!

The money raised here goes to the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota. They have been the most wonderful organization for our family so far, in educating us about Down syndrome, and helping us network with other families. They are definitely worthy and deserving of your support.

We hope you will consider a small donation, and would love it if you could join us for the Buddy Walk, which will be Sunday, September 21st at Como Park in St. Paul.

Again, thank you, and we appreciate your support!

George Matthew, Janet, Maeve, and Cecelia Linkert
