Thank You Peeps!

Dear Peeps,
Thank you for helping make 2015 another successful year for Porter's Peeps and for your continued support of Porter and the Trisomy 21 Program at CHOP. Buddy Walk day means so much to our family. In some ways, it's like Christmas- with so much anticipation and excitement building up to one day where Porter is surrounded by family and friends. Whether you traveled five miles or more than five hundred miles, your presence was so very appreciated. The efforts you made to raise funding for the Trisomy 21 Program were tremendous- we've raised over $8,000 this year as a team. You've made our family smile and appreciate just how far we've come together. When we learned that Porter would be born with Down syndrome, we worried. We worried about his health and about how our family and friends would react. We were scared. For us, Buddy Walk day is another affirmation that our worries were baseless. Our friends and family, the people who truly matter, have shown nothing but love and support for Porter from day one. Thanks for being our Peeps! We love you!
The Thompson Family








P.S.To our Fitzpatrick Peeps who were with us in spirit- you were in our thoughts and hearts throughout the day! We sported our Fight Like a Girl bracelets to celebrate a special lady and anxiously awaited photos of the most beautiful bride. Congratulations Colleen & John!!!! We love you!
