On Saturday, April 26, Brady’s Walk 2008 will be held at D.W. Field Park in Brockton, MA to raise money for the Williams Syndrome Association.
As many of you know, my son Brady, was born in October 2005 with this genetic condition that affects 1 in every 7,500 births which causes physical and cognitive disabilities. The money raised will go to the Williams Syndrome Association (http://www.williams-syndrome.org/). This organization is pinnacle in aiding research efforts, WS education, and bridging a community of support and friendship.
Brady is now two-and-a-half years old and has had quite a busy year! He had eye surgery this past month and just received his DAFOs (Dynamic Ankle Foot Orthosis) to aid in his ability to walk. He continues with his Early Intervention therapies, and has added Music Therapy and Playgroup to his schedule. The Music Therapy class has invigorated him, and his love for the guitar has really shone through.
If you would like to join us in the Walk, please do! Last year we had over 35 adults and children (and one dog!) participate, by walking, scooting and bike riding. Let me know and I will forward you the info. There's no fee to walk -- just come along and hope for some nice spring weather!
If you cannot attend, but would like to donate to Brady's Walk, please email me and I will give you the info to send your check in. Thanks in advance!
