BENEFITING: DOWN SYNDROME NETWORK OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY INC
EVENT: Buddy Walk 2012
EVENT DATE: Oct 06, 2012
Andrew, aka Drube, is 3 and a half years old now! He loves preschool and even rides the bus (now that was a big milestone for Andrew and his mama!). Andrew brings love, light, and joy to our family everyday. He seems to say frequently, "Now don't underestimate me, guys!" and impresses us continuously with his leaps and bounds, both big and small. He is our little warrior, and we thank God for him always.
This year we are delighted to participate in the annual Buddy Walk with the Down Syndrome Network of Montgomery County. We love this organization, as it has helped us throughout our journey and provided such wonderful support, community, and resources. We didn't get to walk last year, but we are looking forward to participating this year.
The purpose of the Buddy Walk is to promote acceptance and awareness of people with Down syndrome in Montgomery County and beyond. Funds raised through the Buddy Walk enable the DSNMC to educate and reach out to health care providers, employers, and educators as well as to support families who need help with the ongoing challenges of raising a child with special needs. The Buddy Walk is the only fundraiser of the DSNMC, so we depend on your support to serve our families and community. Any donation will be greatly appreciated!
Please also consider joining us Saturday, October 6 at 10:00AM for the Buddy Walk at Falls Road (Hadley's) Park (12600 Falls Road, Potomac MD). There will be fun for all, including amusement activities, arts and crafts, games, and yummy food!
As always, thank you so much for your love, support, and generosity!
