About the Campaign
My name is Stacey and I’m 29 years old. I love music, singing, dancing, karaoke, colouring, babies, animals, zip lining, amusement rides, downhill skiing in the winter and camping in the summer. You can find me at L’Arche Tova Cafe in Transcona during the day on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays where I work as hostess…….at least I WILL BE when this awful pandemic goes away and I can go back to work. I LOVE this job as I get to meet so many wonderful people while I work.
It’s been 2.5 years since I moved to my new home in Windsor Park. I love living here, but it’s been hard this past 1.5 years, being separated from my L’Arche friends in other houses, as well as at times from my family and friends. At least I can keep in touch with my mom & dad through text and video calls. I love going back for overnight visits.
I have participated in the MDSS Walk with Us (formerly Buddy Walk) every year since my mom started it 14 years ago. I get to dance to great music, get together with lots of friends and meet new people all while supporting The Manitoba Down Syndrome Society . This year, like last year, will again be a virtual walk, with everyone doing their own thing. I plan to walk that day with my family and encourage you to walk in support of MDSS as well. I sure hope we can all get together again in person next year. Thank you for your support!
