Graham Rahal to Carry DSI logo on helmet in Indy 500!

Graham Rahal, Driver of the #38 Service Central Special for Ganassi Racing will be wearing the Down Syndrome Indiana logo on his helmet in support of people with Down syndrome in this year's Indianapolis 500 Mile Race. "One of the great things about being in my position as a professional race car driver is that I can use my position to help organizations like Down Syndrome Indiana," said Rahal.  Rahal’s decision to carry the Down Syndrome Indiana logo was clinched when he met then 11 month old Catalina Joyce, as she and her father and Down Syndrome Indiana board member, Jeff Joyce, visited Netheads. "He was such a nice, down-to-earth guy", said Jeff, "And he was genuinely interested in helping our organization to create awareness about acceptance and inclusion of individuals with Down syndrome. In the words of Jeff Joyce, father of Catalina Joyce with Down syndrome, “This goes to show what a stand-up guy Graham is for following up on this for us. You can’t imagine how much this can help our organization, Down Syndrome Indiana, and my Daughter Catalina. ….”

Buddy Walk® Team Hi-Lite: 2010 Tigers All Stars

“This year, we are raising money for the Down Syndrome Indiana Buddy Walk. If we raise $5,000 by August 1, 2012, Tommy and Savannah will be featured on a full billboard advertisement in Central Indiana. We have also joined the Buddy Walk Committee and are responsible for coordinating the food and beverages at the event.

Savannah was born with Down syndrome in Michigan to Mary & Alan in February 2010 and relocated to the Indianapolis area in October 2011. Tommy was born with Down syndrome in New Jersey to Rebecca & Wes in October 2010 and relocated to the Indianapolis area in September 2011. The families met each other at the 2011 Buddy Walk in Indianapolis where Alan & Wes quickly realized that they played softball together several years ago in the Detroit area. The families became fast friends and decided to join forces for the 2012 Buddy Walk.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!” The link to the team page is:
