Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan
Team Vinnie - Captain: Lynn Ramirez

Thank you for supporting the DSG!!


2017 is a big year for Vinnie.  In the spring he joined The Special Olympics Team Farmington.  He competed in his first Oakland County Track Meet and received a first place blue ribbon in the 100M, the shot put and the standing long jump ...Yeah Vinnie!  In addition, Vinnie played his 7th season on the Miracle League of Plymouth.  This summer Vinnie participated on the 2017 Detroit Tiger’s Fantasy Camp, the Novi Fantasy Football Camp and the Plymouth Wildcats Sunshine football camp.  Also, Vinnie has joined the Team Farmington Golf and Softball leagues.  All of these events give Vinnie the opportunity to explore the world and define his place in it.

In the fall Vinnie will start middle school; he is growing so much.  Vinnie’s day revolves around calendars, dates and schedules.   If you are headed out of town, he wants to know where you are going, when you are leaving the house, when you will arrive at the airport, when you will board the plane, when you arrive at your destination, when you will check in to your hotel and most importantly when you are coming home. 

Vinnie is charming, goofy and full of life.  He embraces every new opportunity and challenge with tenacity and excitement.  He is a loving boy who is eager to please and always wants a hug.  Also, Vinnie is a dancer; my favorite move is his touchdown dance that he perfected at the Sunshine Football camp this year.


Everyday Vinnie surprises me, makes me smile, and warms my heart.

Each year I walk to celebrate Vinnie and all people with Down Syndrome.   This year The Step up for Down Syndrome event is on 9/23/17 at the Detroit Zoo. The funds raised at this event help the Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan provide up to date education, support and guidance to families, teachers and medical professionals.  

Last year, Team Vinnie raised over $2,000!

Please join Team Vinnie  and walk with us to support people with Down syndrome.
