EVENT DATE: Sep 19, 2015
We Are WALKING! All five of us, well at least three of us. The smallest two of our bunch may be taking a ride in the luxurious double stroller, BUT, we will be moving toward the finish line and we would love to have you come join us! Here is the very "official" details of who and what the Buddy Walk is and does:
Established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.
The National Buddy Walk® Program has grown from 17 Walks in 1995 to over 250 this year!
Each Buddy Walk is required to give 7% of funds raised to NDSS, which directly supports the NDSS National Policy Center. Allocation of funds will vary from Walk to Walk, but the money raised at every Walk supports both local and national initiatives that benefit people with Down syndrome.
Basically, this is just a fun way to raise funds that will help those who need help :D
Finally, I would like to mention that our God is an amazing God and He has never failed us. Our hearts have been made full with each one of our children and Maxx has been nothing less than a miracle and blessing in our lives. Please know that your prayers for Maxx and, now, for this event are appreciated as much as your monetary gift. Thank you for loving us and Maxx so well. God bless!
