Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan
#TeamNJK - Captain: Gary Koutsoubos

Thank you for supporting the DSG!!


Come spend the day with #TeamNJK!

Nicholas and family are excited to be heading back to the Detroit Zoo for the Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan’s StepUP for Down Syndrome Walk and we invite you to join us on September 23, 2017!

#TeamNJK will once again be raising money to support the DSGSEMI, southeast Michigan's leading organization for resources and information about all things Down syndrome.  Thanks to the DSGSEMI, Nicholas has had the opportunity to participate in the Young Athletes Program at the TeamGUTS training facility, advocate at the State Capitol for World Down Syndrome Day and hang out and support his friends at events like 321 Miles for 321 Smiles.

Speaking of smiling, Nicholas has had many reasons to smile this past year!  His sisters Abigail and Aubrey love to dance, read, and play with him.  Through pre-school and therapy, he has continued to improve in a variety of ways.  For instance, if he wants you for something, he will literally grab your hand and walk you to what he needs, be it a snack, a book or just to turn on a toy.  He is able to, with supervision, walk up and down the stairs with our hand holding.  Over the past few months, he has improved his gross motor skills, including learning to zip up his coat.  But best of all, he is finally feeding himself on a regular basis!!!

Megan and I are so proud of all of Nicholas’ accomplishments and we are so thankful for the support he has received from friends, family and the community at large.  We hope you to see you at the Detroit Zoo this fall and if you cannot join us, we welcome you to donate to #TeamNJK and the Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan!
