Board Member Spotlight-TJ Miller and Down for the Ride
When did you join the DSAGT board of directors?
-I first joined the board in 2015.
What do you enjoy most about being a part of DSAGT?
-I most enjoy knowing that I'm making a difference in the community and for individuals with Down Syndrome.
Why do you think it's important for families to be involved with DSAGT?
-It a nice way for families to meet others who are going through the same life curves as you. DSAGT also provides many opportunities for families to interact and get together as well as provides important resources for the families.
Tell us a little more about Down for the Ride.
-It started in 2015 kind of as a joke but turned into us wanting to build a community center for individuals with Down Syndrome. Over the last five years we've had thousands of riders and raised almost $100,000 with our end goal to build a community center to help teach individuals life skills and also feel safe in a place around their own peers and to meet new people.
What's your advice to anyone interested in joining the board of directors and DSAGT committees?
- Come in with an open mind, be willing to learn new things.
What are your favorite things to do outside of work and DSAGT?
-I most enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
