Thank you for visiting Team Evelyn's Fundraising Page!
Whether it's a friend, a family member, or neighbor down the street, we almost all know someone with Down syndrome. Evelyn is an enchanting, lively and passionate young lady. She loves playing with her rambunctious and adoring big brother, John Wayne, loving parents and two big fur dog "brothers" Bosco & K’noli. Evelyn has many hobbies such as dancing to music, racing her brother in her blue cozy coupe car, and feeding her chickens. Along with many loved family members, friends and hobbies, Evelyn also happens to have a third copy of the 21st chromosome.
Mid - July 2017, about 10 days after Evelyn's birth, we were given a karyotype test result confirming a diagnosis of Down syndrome. Mid-July 2017 our little Sherman family would just begin to realize how this diagnosis of Down syndrome would only enrich and bless our lives in an immense way.

We're proud to be part of the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin-Sheboygan & Surrounding Counties' 9th Annual Down Syndrome Awareness Walk because it means so much to us and to our family.

Through this organization we’ve been introduced to many new friends, resources and enjoyed fun family activities!
Like us, many of you have been personally touched by the lives of these individuals with Down syndrome. People with Down syndrome are more LIKE the rest of us than they are different. They have feelings, talents and dreams just like everyone. They deserve to be accepted and appreciated for who they are and what they contribute to our lives and our communities.
