One Small Step

It takes a village is either an ancient African proverb or the title of Hilary Clinton's book.  Either way it's true.  I'm constantly amazed at the love and support surrounding this kiddo. His one lucky squirt and his Aunt Stephanie is leading the charge.  This fall we'll be hosting a fundraiser for the Foundation for Prader Willi Research.   Here's the cool part - Aunt Steph runs the IB program for Stony Point High and her students are organizing the event.  We're going to have a 5K run/1K walk and tons of fun.  But wait there's more...if we're successful this year, our little fundraiser could become a legacy project!

Shout out to Aunt Step - same nose, mouth and hair?

So many friends are helping out.  One is a race director and will meet with the students to help organize the run.  He's also working the sponsorship angle for us.  Maybe an in with HEB!  Another is only 7 and she's created her own fundraiser page.  Her girl scout troop may work our water stations. Some friends from Houston have already raised $300+ and are coming into town for the event.  Even my super creative pals are pitching in by helping with the brochure and setting up a trapeze demonstration.  Aunt Ash from Corpus created a page and made a BIG donation today.

The event is Oct 2nd - one week before his 1st Birthday. Mark your calendars to celebrate Joe and wipe out this ugly syndrome we call PWS.
