Happy 2nd Birthday

It's hard to believe that Delilah is 2 today. Where does the time go? She has grown so much over the past year. She's walking, running, jumping, climbing, talking, singing, etc, etc, etc.  Her little personality is not so little anymore. It's MEGA! She is very much miss independent and wants things done her way. (Can't imagine who she gets that from?!?) Even with the diva toddler attitude, she is still the sweetest and easiest child to be around. Her smile can instantly turn a bad day into a great one. We look forward to seeing what this next year will bring for her. If it is anything like this past year, then we know it will be AWESOME.

One Year

 Two Years

As this is her birthday, I have decided today is the perfect day to kick off my campaign for the Scotiabank, One Small Step Walk. If ever there was a fundraiser near and dear to my heart it is this one. I, along with 49 other locations worldwide, will be hosting walks to benefit Prader-Willi research. It is my dream to see a cure within my lifetime. My walk will be August 27th, 9am-Noon at Heardmont Park in Birmingham, AL.

There are several ways you can help:

  • You can donate to my fundraiser page:
    • All donations $25 or more will receive a tax receipt
    • You can also mail checks directly to me. Please email me for the address.
  • You can participate in the walk and create your own fundraiser page:
    • Even if you don't want to utilize the online donation page, please register as we will use it to determine the amount of people attending the walk.
    • If you can't attend the walk you can still raise money for us as a "Virtual Walker". Create your page and collect donations. You don't have to be present at the event to be eligible for prizes.
  • Speaking of PRIZES
    • International Prizes (to be drawn Oct. 15)
      • XBox 360 with Kinect - raise a minimum of $200 to be entered into drawing (only one entry)
      • Trip for 2, including up to $1500 air voucher - for every $500 raised you will recieve one entry for this prize. 
      • For more info on the international prizes please visit:
    • There will also be a raffle for some prizes (yet to be determined) at the walk.
    • Please help me get the word out by telling everyone who will listen about this fundraiser
      • Family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, church members, local businesses, etc.
  • Help me with planning this walk!!!
    • I need help gathering all the items needed to pull off a successful Walk. If there is anything or anyway you can contribute, please let me know. below are some of the things we are trying to get donated to our walk. 
      • Prizes for Raffle
