2014 Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk

While we aren't quite at our fundraising goal of $2,000, we did raised enough to earn all three of our fact posters during our early bird fundraising contest.  Our photographer Erica Thompson of Images for a Lifetime built an amazingly cool set just for our kiddos, and Ben got to be one of the first ones to try it out.  While the idea was to sit or lay in the circle, Ben did not want to have anything to do with that.  He wanted to do just one thing.....
JUMP!
What you can't see in this photo is his big brother Noah who was laying on the floor about to get jumped on.  Erica got about 10 photos just like this and Ben had a blast!  


She did get a couple more good photos, but all of them have one thing in common.  If he was not jumping, he was getting into position to jump again.  


 This one is my favorite.  I call it his surfer dude pose.  I also reminds me of the opening of one of the James Bond movies.  



Thank you for supporting Ben's Brigade!
