We would love for you to join us on October 6th for a fun day at Hadley Park. This will be our sixth Buddy Walk and every year Team Anderson grows bigger and better. We are so grateful to all of the family, friends, classmates, neighbors, teachers, aides, therapists and co-workers who support us not just at the Buddy Walk, but every single day. With your collective help Anderson is thriving in a regular 1st Grade class, beginning to read and write and enjoying all of the same things as a typical seven year old. He has to work longer and harder to learn new things but he does so with incredible patience and determination. He always has a big smile and warm hug for anyone he knows and his enthusiasm is so genuine that it becomes infectious!
We feel very fortunate to live in community that supports inclusion and are grateful for all of the work that the Down Syndrome Network of Montgomery County does to enrich the lives of individuals who have Down syndrome. DSNMC, a 501(c)(3) organization, supports over 300 local families. Your donation will enable DSNMC to provide resources such as informative workshops for parents, outreach to local educators and medical professionals, and social/recreational opportunities for families and people with Down syndrome. The Buddy Walk is DSNMC's only fundraiser and depends on your support to serve it's families and the community! Thank you so much for your generosity!
