Delaney's Dreams

For those of you that know us, Delaney is the light of our lives. She has come such a long way since being born December 2017. From being at deaths door at birth, to now everyday, accomplishing more and more. Bringing smiles to all those she meets. And one of the many reasons she has come so far is because of you! Donations made to the Down Syndrome Association go towards so many things, right here in the Fox Cities. Delaney is enrolled in so many classes. Music, Speech, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Theater, Horseback Riding, Swimming. The list goes on and on. Your donation helps towards the costs of these classes. They are helping her so much. Because of low muscle tone, Delaney still isn't fully walking. Also Delaney isn't talking yet. So we must keep her enrolled in classes to inspire her to use her voice and her muscles. Also all this exposure to different activities, helps her keep up with kids her age. The benefits are unmeasurable. I've seen first hand how there is no wasting of funds given to the Down Syndrome Association of the Fox Cities. I've met so many families since we have started this journey, and know first hand, how your donation has benefited them. Thank you as we host our 3rd year of CELEBRATING ABILITIES!!!

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page! Whether it's a friend, a family member, or neighbor down the street, we almost all know someone with Down syndrome or related disabilities. Like us, many of you have been personally touched by the lives of these individuals. We are proud to be part of the DSAW- Fox Cities 11th Annual Down Syndrome Awareness Walk because it means so much to us and to our family.

Due to the pandemic, this year's walk will look a little different. We can't wait for a months-long, virtual party celebrating our loved ones with Down syndrome and related disabilities! Now more than ever, your support of DSAW is crucial. DSAW had to close their offices and suspend in person programs and events for months -- we need YOU to help ensure DSAW's viability during this pandemic and beyond. Please consider supporting our team in any way you can. Each donation, no matter how big or small, will support individuals with Down syndrome and related disabilities.

Donating through this website is simple, fast, and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support our fundraising efforts. You can make your tax-deductible donation online, or if you would prefer, you can send your contribution to the DSAW Fox Cities Office, 211 E. Franklin St., Appleton, WI, 54911 (Just be sure to write our team name on the memo line so that we get credit for the donation!) Whatever you can give will help - it all adds up! To sponsor us simply press Donate Now.
