BENEFITING: DOWN SYNDROME NETWORK OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY INC
EVENT: Buddy Walk 2014
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2014
Please join us on Saturday, October 11 at 10 am to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Down Syndrome Network of Montgomery County (DSMNC) Buddy Walk! The walk will be held at Hadley Park in Potomac, MD (12600 Falls Road).
The Buddy Walk is the primary fundraising activity of the DSNMC, a support network, advocacy group and information provider to families whose lives have been touched by Down syndrome.
DSNMC has been a huge help to us since Jay was born. The day after we brought him home from the hospital, another parent came to our house to greet us and to make sure we were connected to other DS families in and around our neighborhood and with children close to Jay's age. We don't know what we would have initally done without the group and continue to be involved in their advocacy and social events.
DSNMC is a volunteer organization with nearly 100 percent of the funds raised directly supporting the programs and services of DSNMC and the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS), a federal advocacy group doing great things for individuals with DS.
Because of the invaluable work of organizations like DSNMC and NDSS, Jay has so many opportunities ahead of him and we are so positive about his future. He turned one-year old on July 30 and amazes us everyday with his accomplishments.
We would be honored to have you walk with us next month in support of the Down Syndrome Network of Montgomery County. Following the walk, there are games, entertainment and fun for the kids.
All our best,
Mary Beth, Joe, Genevieve and Jay
