Mighty Little Warrior
Welcome everyone to our Mighty Little Warrior's Step Up for Down Syndrome team page! We are excited that you are joining us to celebrate those like Anthony who are rocking an extra 21st chromosome. This is our third year having a team honoring Anthony and cannot wait for the event again. We more than doubled our team donations and team members from the first year to the second, reaching our goal of $1000 donated last year. This year we have an even bigger goal! This year our team goal is $2500! I know with our amazing team members, and a few sponsors, we can make this happen.
Why do we care so much about this walk? As you know, our sweet Anthony has Down syndrome (Trisomy 21). He has been such an amazing blessing to us and to all that he comes in contact with. I haven't met a single person yet that has not felt the joy of Anthony. The money donated by our team goes towards funding of programs by the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis. The money stays local and helps those with Down syndrome in our own community. One of the great programs that the DSAGSL created was offering resources, information, and connections to families who just had a baby with Down syndrome. I will always be grateful for the care they showed me in the hospital right after Anthony was born. Check out their page for more information on what programs they put on for the Down syndrome community that could only happen because of your donations at www.dsagsl.org.
Looking forward to enjoying a great day with you all and your families!
