Weekly Team Spotlight!

Team Lukie Luke is back for another year supporting DSPNT!  The team reports “We are looking forward to participating in the Step Up for Down Syndrome walk this year. I remember our first walk in 2007 when Lucas was a baby. As a new parent of a child with DS, I was overwhelmed by our new journey. The walk gave me an insight of what was to come and gave me peace of mind knowing our family was not alone. We hope that we can give other families the same peace while supporting the DSPNT and raising awareness for Lucas and his friends”.  DSPNT is looking forward to seeing Team Lukie Luke for a great day on October 22nd!
