2017 Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk

Thank you for your support to the 2017 Capital City Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk.

See you next year on October 6, 2018 when we Step Up again.


Hadley Rae's of Sunshine - Captain: Jared Nielsen

For those of you who know or have spent any amount of time around Hadley, I'm sure it's not a surprise to you that we named her team the Hadley Rae's of Sunshine.  Her energy and her personality is contagious and she frequently catches everyone's attention when she walks in to a room.  Tiff, myself, and Hadley and a number of friends and family have enjoyed walking in the Step It Up for Down Sydrome walk since 2015 and this year we want to make much more of an impact so we created a team!

At this point in Hadley's life, I'm not sure there is anything she thinks she CAN'T do!  With the help of early development services and the great support system Hadley has around her, she has been hitting all of her major milestones and doing so with a huge smile.  Hadley has been walking for about a year now and its getting more and more challenging to keep up with her since she is always on the go!  Hadley's communication skills are improving every week it seems and she is able to both say and sign a growing number of words.  Recently, Hadley became a big sister and she couldn't be more proud - always giving baby sis plenty of hugs and kisses.

Tiffany and I hope that you could please consider donating to a great organization, DSAF of Nebraska, and to help Hadley and the rest of the team hit our fundraising goal.  We would also love to have you walk with the team, but if you're not able to make the walk, no big deal!

Thank you for taking the time to view the Step It Up walk fundraising page for Team Hadley Rae's of Sunshine!  We hope that you can join us to walk with the team on October 7th and help to raise some money for DSAF of Nebraska and to support individuals with Down Syndrome and their families! 

We sincerely thank you!!!
