Hello Cool Beans Box Community!
Hope you all are doing well and embracing the ups and downs of this crazy thing called life. I know our family is doing our best to do just that, embracing our journey.
Last month I shared about World Down Syndrome Day, which takes place every year on March 21. I wrote about my Amazing daughter, Chloe and my dreams and hopes for her.
Well today I am sharing, I know last minute, about Chloe’s school, The Ashford Rise School of Dallas, having their 20th Annual Rise & Shine 5K Walk & Run 2019 on April 28 to raise money for the school, which is a non-profit organization (info below, along with a video link of the event from 2017).
Off the school’s website: “The Ashford Rise School of Dallas provides the highest quality of early childhood education services to children with Down Syndrome and other developmental disabilities and to children without disabilities in an inclusive classroom setting with master's level educators and on-staff speech, occupational, physical, and music therapists.”
Chloe’s class, the Yellow Room, is in competition to raise the most money, with the goal of winning an ice cream party. Who does not like ice cream? Actually, Chloe does not, at least not yet, one day though. We are sharing this event to ask if you can assist her, by way of a donation, with helping her class win, while raising money for the school. Any donation amount will help and would be tremendous for the school!!
Here is the link to donate to Chloe’s Wolverines Team and if you want to run and walk in the event you can register on her page, by clicking Register.
We sincerely thank you in advance and wish you all nothing but Peace, Love, and Happiness!!!
