For the past three months I, Kelly Hietpas, have been raising money through VandeWalle’s candy bar sales and cash donations at Grassroots Salon of Appleton. This collection is for the First Annual Down Syndrome Awareness Walk in the Fox Cities.
I feel very passionate about this walk because it effects me personally. My daughter Tajah has Down Syndrome. 9 1/2 years ago, she was born into our family and changed our lives forever. Tajah has opened our eyes to all the simple joys in life, and taught our family much more about compassion and reality than we could ever imagine. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Tajah and I along with her family and friends will be participating in this Walk, which will take place Saturday, Oct 2 2010 at Riverside Park in Neenah. Please stop by the salon and show your support or join us on the Walk.
Thanks to everyone so far for your generous donations, they are greatly appreciated. For more information please go to DSAWFOXCITIES.ORG.
I am blessed to have family and friends in my life. I am thankful for everything that I have been given. Kelly Hietpas
