We will have a special 50/50 drawing with half the money going to The Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City and the other half to a lucky fan. Please take the time to read the following information written by Scorer and Track Worker Barb Chapman on Down Syndrome and the great cause the money will support.

One in every 800 babies born is diagnosed with Down Syndrome, also known as Trisomy 21, which means the baby is born with an extra chromosome. In 2011 a little Superman Cole, was born and his parents were given this diagnosis. After some research they found out this could mean many different things. Each diagnosis can present itself with any combination of issues such as intellectual disabilities, physical growth delays, leukemia, and many more. At 7 days old we found out not only did Cole have Down Syndrome but he also had 2 holes in his heart. At 9 months old he underwent open heart surgery at Children’s Mercy Hospital to close the holes in his heart. This is one of several surgeries Cole would undergo before he was 2 years old.

Individuals with Down Syndrome have more hurdles than typically developing people which is why each year events are held like the Step Up For Down Syndrome Walk to raise money for The Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City. This is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to serving families and educators with needed resources. Each year since Cole was born we’ve had a team at the walk. All money raised for our team “Cole’s Camp” goes to the DSG of Kansas City to help them continue to support our families through the extra struggles an extra chromosome can present. Half of the money from tonight’s 50/50 will go to DSG of Kansas City.
