Dear Sponsors,

Our F.R.I.E.N.D.S. - DOWN SYNDROME WEST FLORIDA (FDSWF) non-profit has been working very hard to coordinate some amazing programs, community events, and initiatives for our Tampa Bay individuals impacted with Down syndrome.  Our Goal is to work together to advocate, educate and celebrate by taking meaningful action in our local community, and we did!

We have been busy raising money to open THE FRIENDS CENTER, which will offer all our year-round programs and events, plus a desperately needed DAY CARE and AFTER SCHOOL and ADULT DAY PROGRAM to the special need’s community. 

We invite you to sponsor and to partner with us for our 4th 3.21K Fun Run & Buddy Walk to help us reach our goal of $100,000.  Our theme this year is “Sometimes You Gotta Run Before You Walk!”   We are asking our Tampa Bay community, city and business leaders, partners and families, for help as we make Tampa not only Down syndrome friendly, but inclusive for all special needs. Help us show our Down syndrome Pride!

We are committed to actively promoting every sponsor who helps make this a much-anticipated event. Your organizations name will be included on our 4th FDSWF 3.21K Fun Run & Buddy Walk website, Facebook page, participant t-shirts, and all media used to promote the event.

If you have any questions about the event, sponsorship opportunities, or if you are looking for a customized package don’t hesitate to contact, Jamie Santillo, FDSWF Marketing Director at (239)297-6691 you can reach her via email at jamie@jscreativemarketing.com.  We look forward to your help in promoting this fun, family friendly, and much needed event for our entire community.

Thank you for your gift of support and sponsorship,
Ann Foyt, R.N.
FDSWF President
