Hello Friends and Family,
We are so happy and blessed to live in a community that is working to support Kenzie's growth, development, and quality of life. The community that I am referring to includes the 400,000 Americans with Down syndrome, their families and friends, and the dedicated professionals and volunteers that work together to improve the quality of life of individuals with Down syndrome.
This is our first year to be involved with the DSAJ Buddy Walk® to support people with Down syndrome in my community. This event raises money that is given directly back to the local Down syndrome community and Kenzie, through the programs and social events they offer as well as funding assistance for therapies that insurance will not cover.
More importantly the event allows us to advocate for the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.
For every step I take and every dollar I raise, I am helping to create a culture that fully includes the more than 400,000 Americans with Down syndrome. Last year, nearly $12 million dollars was raised by 300,000 Buddy Walk participants worldwide.
Your support for the Buddy Walk, by walking with me or by making a donation, will help honor and celebrate Kenzie and all people with Down syndrome.
