I know these are tough times, so not everyone can donate. And I, more than anyone, can definitely understand (and respect!) that! So if you’re not able to donate, PLEASE do not feel inclined to! But I would love if you tweeted, posted, and shared the URL to my page for the Down Syndrome Walk. Even if no one donates, getting the word out there about Down Syndrome and raising awareness about it – will make me feel just as good!
With much love, Tawmis!
When Dexter was born, my life was changed. And he’s not even MY son. He’s the son of Jason and Colette Cosky, whom I love very much. But when Dexter entered my life, it definitely changed. I suddenly wanted to fight for a better tomorrow. Not just for myself, but for Dexter. I wanted him to be able to achieve every dream he could muster; I wanted him to walk in a world without any limitations or prejudice.
Dexter and I.
I’m walking in the 2013 San Diego Buddy Walk® Oktoberfest to show my support for the more than 350,000 individuals with Down syndrome in the United States. I want to do my part to make sure that each individual is given every opportunity to reach their full potential.
Every step I take, every dollar I raise will help ensure that each individual with Down syndrome in the United States will be able to do just that. Last year alone, over $9.5 million dollars was raised nation-wide for local and national education, research and advocacy programs.
Your involvement in the Buddy Walk — by walking with me or by sponsoring me — will make steps for a brighter tomorrow for all individuals with Down syndrome. Together we can enhance the quality of life for people with Down syndrome.
This year the walk will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at NTC Park in Liberty Station (Point Loma).
Thank you for supporting me — and all individuals with Down syndrome.
