Pat Starnes Snippets: Walking for a Cause - Central MS Down Syndrome Buddy Walk

Walking for a Cause - Central MS Down Syndrome Buddy Walk

It's been a while since Buddy Walk ScheduleI participated in a 5K, but I remember the excitement of crossing the finish line. I'm walking again, this time to benefit the Central MS Down Syndrome Society.


Our office, Front Gate Realty, is participating in the Buddy Walk, 5K and Fun Run at Trustmark Park in Pearl on October 13. Our goal is to raise $1,000 to support a team member whose daughter Grace has Down Syndrome. I'm confident we will blow past that goal.


Grace's Groupies is our team name. Every little bit helps. If you feel inclined to make a donation, here is the link to my fundraising page. 


Those who know me well know I'm not a morning person, but a co-worker promised to pick me up the morning of the walk, to make sure I get there on time!


I'll share photos after the event, and I'll wear my comfy walking shoes.

Pat, I just one mile walk with our lab, Zeke, and I am worn out :) 

You go girl and no doubt the Gracie Groupies will finish the 5K walk and raise a lot of funds.

The walk is for a very worthy cause, Pat.  I'm glad your community is presenting this opportunity.

Best wishes. Sounds like a great cause. I'm not a morning person either, but sometimes getting up and going is worth it! -Kasey

Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor® - I'm not sure at this point whether I'll do the Fun Run (1 mile) or the 5K. Last time I was in better physical condition than now.

Such a great cause to support, Pat... hope it raises a lot of money. And the picture of the shoes is fun... I always use colorful laces, myself.

Good for you Pat.  This is a worthy cause that will go a long way to help those with Down Syndrome.

Pat, we had our MS Walk a few months ago and have a REALTOR affected by this disease.   I gave then!  Good luck.
