Our Team Fundraising Page

Lila is now 13!!  Where did that time go??  She still loves dancing, singing and her siblings.  Lately, she has also been into make-up!  She is also trying something new this year.  She is involved in the Penguin Project which is putting on the production Annie Jr. in October.  She is playing the part of Lily, which is a "bad guy" but she is doing a great job practicing for it.  She continues to enjoy volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, show choir camp and choir as well!  We are so proud of her!!

Thank you for visiting our Team Fundraising Page! Whether it's a friend, a family member, or neighbor down the street, we almost all know someone with Down syndrome. Like us, many of you have been personally touched by the lives of these individuals. We're proud to be part of the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin's Annual Awareness Walk because it means so much to us and to our family.

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.

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 bring your contribution to the walk.  Make checks payable to DSAW-COTH-GLA and 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.

Please also join us on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at the Onalaska Omni Center and walk with us as part of our team. It's an incredible day of celebration with family, friends and people who, like you, want to raise awareness, raise funds, and raise the hope of a better world for all people with Down syndrome. With your support and involvement, our goals of acceptance, inclusion and empowerment will become a reality!
