Ava’s T21 Foundation:
Proceeds from donations and events go to F.R.I.E.N.D.S ( Family Resource, Information and Education Network for Down Syndrome) and NDSS (The National Down Syndrome Society), as well as other organizations that aim to improve the quality of life of those with Down syndrome and promote inclusion, awareness and compassion. With the success of the 2016 Ava’s 5K for Down Syndrome, we were able to donate funds to the special education program at Winfield Elementary School. With those funds, a rock wall was installed for all students to enjoy. A Welcome Basket program has also been started at Frederick Memorial Hospital for those families with a newborn with Down syndrome.
