31 for 21: DAY 20 :: Buddy Walk

In just ONE WEEK, the Down Syndrome Network of Greater Greensboro will hold it's Ninth Annual Buddy Walk!

For those of you unfamiliar with the Buddy Walk, it is not just a local event.  Buddy Walks take place all over the country during the month of October to raise awareness and promote inclusion of inviduals with Down syndrome.

Down Syndrome Fact of the Day #20:

The Buddy Walk program was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome and to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. The name Buddy Walk promotes inclusion between friends of every ability.

This month, over 250 Buddy Walks will take place throughout the United States to celebrate individuals with Down syndrome, like our son Jack. 

Our local Buddy Walk is organized by the Down Syndrome Network of Greater Greensboro (of which I am a proud board member), and it will be on Saturday, October 27th from 11 am until 3 pm at Triad Park in Colfax, NC.

We would love for your family to join us and walk with "Jack's Pack" this year! 

If you are unable to walk with us this year but still want to show your support, please consider a donation to the Down Syndrome Network of Greater Greensboro in Jack's honor.  Thanks!
