Team Isaac - Captain: Erin Umbehr

Isaac turned 4 years old in July.  He is intelligent, loving, and extremely head strong.  Isaac hates to hear the word “no, but loves to say it:) He is a typical 4 year old, that just needs a little extra time. Isaac was just 3 months old when we participated in our first walk, and we  knew very little about this great event that celebrates how awesome it is to have trisomy 21, otherwise known as Down Syndrome.  Teams had their own T-shirts, and banners.  There was a live band, a cook off, numerous informational booths, and the best part cheerleaders cheering for these individuals,  by name , throughout the walk.  We looked forward to our second walk with anticipation. We made team T-shirts and family and friends came and walked with us as it the rained.  On our third walk, Isaac had just become a big brother, and started to walk.  He was very upset when we had to leave, because he was having so much fun walking around to all the activities.  Last year, for our fourth walk, we again had our T- shirts, supporters of Isaac, and he was able to walk the whole way.  When he walked through the cheerleaders cheering for him at the end, he turned and said, “What did I do?”  October 6th, will be our 5th Buddy  Walk. We are asking that you help us meet our donation goal, and make this year the best ever.  Please support him and others with Down Syndrome by walking with us, or by donating to our team.  Go TEAM ISAAC!!!
