September and October are going to be big months for Brinkley! The little guy turns one on September 6th and of course we are going to celebrate. One way that we are going to celebrate is by playing golf. (Anyone who knows my boys should not be surprised about this!) A golf tournament is being planned to honor Brinkley and to raise money for his medical and therapeutic needs. As details become available I will pass them on, but for now send us your contact information if you would like to play or possibly sponsor. I'll put an interest list together and keep in touch with you.
October is Down Syndrome awareness month and is celebrated all across the country with Buddy Walks. The Buddy Walk brings awareness to DS and helps to raise money for local support groups and activities for DS families. This year we will be participating in both the Anderson and Greenville Buddy Walks. Brinkley was the youngest participant at the Greenville Buddy Walk last year!
We would love to have you be a part of Team Brinkley and walk with us! You'll even get a super cool t-shirt! The Greenville Buddy Walk will be October 6th and Anderson's is October 27th. If you would like to be a part of Team Brinkley please contact us and we will get you the proper info. Team Brinkley's goal is to raise $250 per walk ($500 total). Also, if you or your business would like to sponsor Team Brinkley we can use your help to provide a banner and t-shirts for the team. We will gladly put your name and/or logo on the banner. As soon as we get a designer, we'll get a sample shirt here and start taking sizes.
The Holder's are excited about all the cool things coming up for Brinkley and we hope that you will be joining us!
