Team Up for T21!
"Runs for Ted" started as a little league rallying cheer after our 2 year old son Ted was diagnosed with Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome, at his birth in the Spring of 2016. That simple cheer motivated his big brother Roy's team and filled our hearts with so much encouragement that it has since morphed into a fundraising campaign that unites our family's love of baseball with our love of the Down syndrome community.
Our fundraiser benefits GiGi's Playhouse, a nationwide non-profit and the only Down syndrome achievement center of it's kind. By donating now, 100% of your donation immediately helps GiGi's Playhouse offer a lifetime of free learning and career opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome.
We'll be spreading awareness all summer as we travel the country, fulfilling our dream of visiting all the Major League Baseball stadiums and asking you to donate to this amazing organization.
Use the links at the bottom to follow our adventures with Roy and Ted as we trek 18,000 miles in our minivan to watch some baseball, see our beautiful country and spread awareness about Down syndrome and GiGi's Playhouse.
1 Crazy Adventure, 3 Big Goals
Baseball & family
What better way to introduce our boys to the all the people and places that make our country so wonderful than by traveling to the stadiums that host America's favorite past time? When there's no baseball, we'll be working and homeschooling, so don't worry that your donation is funding a long vacation. In fact, your direct donation ensures that 100% the funds go directly to GiGi's, right now.
Awareness & Acceptance
We hope that by meeting Ted and seeing the amazing bond he has with his brother Roy, that others in our community can see that there is so much to love about loving someone with Down syndrome.
Can you imagine the impact $50,000 will make in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome? Thanks to our friends at GiGi's Playhouse, we know how much your contribution will affect their lives.
Your generosity ensures access to support and life long quality programs for hundreds of families that need your help today. 100% of your donation helps this community become more independent and successful.
