Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk 2011

John Michael's Mates came out in full force to help us STEP UP FOR DOWN SYNDROME last Sunday.  We had 30 team members made up of family, friends, babysitters, 7th Graders and High School students sporting their best pirate gear.

Anna and her friends lead the way...

LOVE the team spirit going on!

Greta and Cap'n Dad... Arrrrgh!

And Oma Crumley, whose shirt says "Old Bag".  I LOVE her sense of humor.  She designed it!

Make way for John Michael Mates!

First Mate Luke had a great time, too.

Big buddy, Frank, is like another big brother to John Michael.
I love watching these two together...

Mr. M and Luke took to land for the last leg of the walk.  So sweet!

In all, John Michael's Mates raised $875 for Down Syndrome awareness.  The money will directly benefit Sacramento's Down Syndrome Information Alliance to help new families and support individuals with Ds.

Can't wait til next year!  Arrrrgh!
