GO TEAM!! The Buddy Walk is almost here!

Family and Friends... October is almost upon us! For many, this brings to mind things like pumpkin-picking, apple cider, hayrides and trick or treating. But October also means Down syndrome awareness month. Last year, Terrific Team Turner raised over $270 to benefit the York Area Down Syndrome Association and the National Down Syndrome Society. The funds raised benefit local families living with Down syndrome and support the NDSS in their mission, which is: "to be the nationa
l advocate for the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome." This year, our goal is to raise at least $400. With your help, we can do it!!

In the last 15 months that we've had the pleasure of having Levi in our lives, our family has become ever more aware of the importance of acceptance and inclusion for everyone. The Down syndrome community needs the support of people like you so that those living with Down syndrome can have an opportunity to lead fulfilling lives and give back to the community in their own valuable ways.

This year, Terrific Team Turner is fundraising and participating in the 8th annual Buddy Walk for the YADSA on Saturday, October 13th. If you are able to make a charitable donation in Levi's name, please visit our firstgiving page. Every person matters - every penny counts! Thank you for your love and support!

I've failed miserably at keeping this blog current since Levi's birthday (Facebook is a lot easier for me to keep up with!) so some recent shots of the aforementioned cutie pie doing his thing...

double duty: crawling practice AND trimming the grass!

crazy reaction to his first taste of brownie goodness!

  1. Thank you for your comment. After I posted it I had a lot of doubts that maybe my message was lost in translation from my mind to the page! Your kids are so adorable. Levi is really lucky to have older siblings to encourage and imitate!


I love to know what you think about my post! Please let me know you were here...
