Strength for the Climb

My blog is a personal journey of the blessings I have been entrusted with and the strength I have been given to make the climb. I invite you to follow along as I write about faith, family, and Down syndrome.

2017 Drop the puck, Jack!

Jack’s Basket Fundraiser Night

 On Saturday, February 4th we watched Jack drop the puck at the Blaine Boy’s HS hockey game against the Hill-Murray Pioneers! Jack's a huge sports fan and loves hockey.  His favorite team is the Bengals as his dad just happens to be the Head Coach for Blaine. We are grateful for all of those that made it out for a great evening!  

Thank you! 

This year we had a variety of raffle items which included a Jack's Blaine Bengal jersey with player signatures, Florida Panthers jersey with team signatures including former Blaine Bengal Nick Bjugstad's signature, another Blaine alumni RileyTufte's stick, U of MN Gopher Men and Womens signed stick, gift cards/certificates to local businesses, LuLaRoe Leggings, and Jacks Basket t-shirts!  We doubled our donations from last year and spread Down syndrome awareness!

Check out more photos from the event and a huge thank you to the Blaine Bengals Boy's Hockey Booster Club for supporting this fundraising event! Also, a huge thank you to the best volunteers that sold raffle tickets and took pictures of the evening.  Thank you to all of you that came out to support Jack's Basket!  Jack did an amazing job dropping the puck and big brother, Luke, had a special job of being a Bengal buddy and was a part of the starting line up!  The night was so much fun and we watched the Blaine Bengals defeat Hill-Murray! Yay, Bengals!
