Sam Elbert's Friends and Fam - Captain: Sam Elbert
We are so happy you will be joining us for our 13th annual Walk for Down Syndrome hosted by DSACK!  Every penny earned from this walk will go to continue the important work DSACK does to support, celebrate, and educate ourselves and others throughout Central and Eastern Kentucky.  DSACK is a lifeline for so many families along their journey.  Thank you for joining our team and for supporting the vital work of this organization.  We'll see you on October 28!

On the dawn of May 30, 2004, Samuel Elbert arrived 4 weeks and 1 day early on Memorial Weekend.  He arrived in an unassuming way amidst tornadoes in Lexington, KY.  He arrived with a quiet peace about him.  I gazed in awe, in the way that only a new mother can, at his coppery silk hair and his soul capturing eyes.  We would soon learn that he also arrived with an extra 21st chromosome in every cell of his body and 3 holes in his heart.  Just as the dawn begins a new day and gently urges you towards the light, who knew that once again a tiny, swaddled baby would yawn and stretch awake a new life of clarity, hope and dazzling love that shines like the sun amidst a world often strife with tornadoes?  Like the sunrise, Sam arrived - beautifully and wonderfully made – illuminating love and hope, to awaken and enlighten a new day for us…

Come join our family on Saturday October 28th as we celebrate Sam, and all people with Down Syndrome, as we participate in our 14th Walk for Down Syndrome with DSACK (Down Syndrome Association of Central KY.  Click on this link to join our team in person or in spirit with a donation.
