Buddy Walk Captains Corner

Dear 2014 Buddy Walk Team Captains:

On behalf of the Down Syndrome Association of Tallahassee (DSAT), thank you again for your efforts last year. Together we raised over $40,000 while celebrating the accomplishments of people with Down syndrome!

Designed to raise awareness, the Buddy Walk is also the number one way that DSAT raises the funds necessary to support local programs for children and families. Proceeds last year helped DSAT offer swim and tutoring scholarships, host an oral motor therapy clinic, sponsor families to attend state and national conferences, sponsor families to have developmental evaluations and so much more.

The 2014 Buddy Walk and Family Fun Day is scheduled for Saturday, October 11th from 9am-12pm at Southwood's Town Center. Please review the team materials enclosed. We have included fund raising ideas, sample letters, individual sponsorship sheets, and team incentives. It is our hope that 55 teams will register with each team raising $1,500 to meet our overall goal of $82,500!

Reaching our 2014 goal will take work and dedication on all fronts! It is our goal to provide you all of the needed support and information to make your team fundraising efforts as successful as possible. Stay tuned for more information on a website webinar tutorial and future team captain meetings. We are also available for individual meetings at your convenience and look forward to assisting you on an ongoing basis and needs and questions arise. As always, please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Best Regards,

Dana Rainey
Executive Director, DSAT
