Lucy shares a hug with her friend Al, who has known her family since before she was born.

Vote for DSAOC in Pepsi Refresh Project

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

We’re thrilled to announce that DSAOC’s idea — $250,000 to support the new CHOC Children’s Down Syndrome Program — was accepted for online voting in the Pepsi Refresh Project during the month of June.

This is a huge opportunity to do something great for children with Down syndrome in Orange County by taking a few minutes each day and vote.  Simply go to https://www.refresheverything.com/light-registration to register and then return to https://www.refresheverything.com/dsaocclinic each day during June to vote.  We are also partnering with the Duke Comprehensive Down Syndrome Clinic which is competing in the $25,000 category to combine our “get out the vote” efforts, so please vote for them as well at https://www.refresheverything.com/downsyndromefreeclinic

Please tell your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers about this and help us support the .clinic.
