ROCHESTER, Minn. -

Ava Karow is 9 years old. Her parents love her so much that they decided to celebrate her by organizing a fundraiser for people to meet and spend time with her.

"Obviously we're a big fan of Ava and people like Ava," Isaac Karow said. "We are a huge fan of anyone with Down Syndrome. We call them our special people. Ava's great! We wish everyone could have a run-in with Ava."

This is the fourth year Ava's family has organized this fundraiser. The family's goal is to raise more than 275 dollars for the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota.
