Thank you all for your interest in our annual Buddy Walk. We are sorry to report that we will be foregoing the walk for this year and look forward to a bigger and better event next year on Sunday October 1, 2017…!!!

There are several family events planned for the upcoming months… The first, for Down Syndrome Awareness, will take place on October 29th with DJ Flip… “Boogie with your Buddy” will be held at St Paul’s Lutheran Church Social Hall, 3108 Sterrettania 6:00-9:00pm.

We are an awesome group of parents who have joined together to promote awareness and inclusion for our children who were born with down syndrome.
