The Ellie Bears!

Andrew, Ellie, and I would like to thank each and every one of you for you support and generosity.  You are all an amazing group of people who have down so much for Ellie, for us, and for promoting Down Syndrome awareness.  

It just brings tears to my eyes when I see that we have:

29 Registered Walkers on Team "The Ellie Bears" + a few Buddy Bears who are registering the day of bringing our team to at least 32 people!

Your generosity has helped us to raise over $1,200!!!!  

We have received donations from 9 different states--TX, FL, VA, NJ, PA, MA, WI, MO, & CA.  All of the money will be dedicated towards funding local programs and services for people with Down Syndrome & their families within the Central Texas area.  

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  --The Theurers

Here is info for this Sunday's (10/24) Buddy Walk:

The walk is on Sunday October 24, 2010 at Reunion Ranch in Georgetown, TX from 12:00pm-4:00pm.  The actual walk is at 2:00pm and is a rain or shine event.
Andrew, Ellie, and I intend on arriving around 12noon and leaving after the walk.
You have until 10/20 at midnight to register online at  www.dsact.com otherwise you must register at the event.  
The following website lists the schedule of events as well as a map to Reunion Ranch.
As we have never been to this ranch, we are not sure of a good meeting place so I have included  a picture of our team sign.  Ellie will be wearing a black “designer genes” T-shirt while Andrew & me will be wearing the Buddy Walk shirts.
See you at the walk!

Still want to donate?  Have no fear!  There are still a few days left!  visit: http://www.active.com/donate/buddywalk10/ellietheurer
