Waves of Awareness - WOA it's A Podcast

Sep 14, 2022

Welcome back to Season Three! WOA is kicking this season off with one of our favorite co-hosts, Matt “Man” Moore, and special guests Dana and Brent Bythewoods! Waves has a long-time relationship with the Bythewoods; it all started when their daughter, Emily Hope, went through our Early Learning Program. We are so excited to have Dana and Brent on to share a piece of their story and announce all the exciting things they are a part of!  

Mark your calendars for upcoming events! You can support two incredible organizations on September 15th. Waves is hosting our annual fall fundraiser, Brews & Grooves at Curio Brewing Co. at 6:00 pm. Join us for our first ever writers round, featuring Sam Blasko, Rachel LaRen, and individuals supported by Waves. Penn Station will be donating 21% of its profits from September 15th to the Extra Mile being put on by the Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee (DSAMT).  

DSMAT organizes The Extra Mile to celebrate and support individuals with Down syndrome and their families and to promote understanding and acceptance of those with Down syndrome. The Extra Mile will be the largest Down syndrome awareness event in the state and their primary source of funding for their programs. Make sure to support team #Emily'sArmy. 

This year The Extra Mile will be held on Saturday, October 22, 2022, at 175 Peyton Road, Lebanon, TN 37087, on the grounds of the Wilson County Fairgrounds. 

This podcast is made possible through partnerships with Spread the Positive, TN's Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, and the Community Foundation of Middle TN.
