EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2014
Thank you for visiting Team Routzahn's fundraising page!!!
On September 20, our team will be participating in our 5th F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Buddy Walk! We are very excited about our team's "5 year anniversary", and we can not thank you enough for the love and support you have shown us since day 1!
The Buddy Walk is one of our favorite events of the year. We love having the opportunity to spend a fun filled day with our family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, educators, and therapists who come together to celebrate Avery and all individuals with Down syndrome. There will be activities the whole family can enjoy such as a petting zoo, moon bounces, fun games, entertainment, food, speakers, and much, much more!
Last year, at this time we were making the transition into the FCPS system, and we are thrilled to report that Avery ROCKED her first year of Pre-K! We could not have asked for a better team of educators to welcome our sweet girl into the school system and continue to build upon the foundation her awesome Infants & Toddlers therapist started. Avery LOVES learning and will happily tell you her alphabet, numbers 1-20, colors, and shapes! She loves reading books, dancing, and singing. "Signing Times" is STILL HER MOST FAVORITE SHOW EVER!!!! We had a busy year with family & friends, Little Gym, and our new favorite activity.. horseback riding! Avery loves her pony "Pineapple", and we look forward to our fall and spring riding sessions through the Frederick Co. 4-H Therapeutic Riding Program. Please take a look at our Buddy Walk 2014 video to see some of the highlights of our year. All in all we had another amazing and blessed year!
As you all know, we are very passionate about our involvement with the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. organization and have witnessed firsthand how the Buddy Walk funds are used to educate and advocate. It is the mission of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. to raise the awareness of Down syndrome through education in our schools, medical communities, business communities and own families. And we know the group is doing a fantastic job!
We invite family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. to join “Team Routzahn” in the 2014 Buddy Walk!!! We truly appreciate all of you who are kind enough to join our team and/or make a donation (donations made through this website are secure and can be used as a tax deduction) in support of awareness, acceptance, and the celebration of Down syndrome. We are very excited for this year's walk! Hope to see you on Sept. 20th!
Many thanks and much love!
