October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month! Here is F.R.I.E.N.D.S Frederick, Maryland is presenting the 16th Annual National Down Syndrome Society Buddy Walk on Saturday, September16th. This will be my 13th year participating in the walk. It was a lot of fun for me. I enjoyed meeting so many people from my community with a similar interest and passion in our children and adults with DS.
By supporting the 15th Annual National Down Syndrome Society Buddy Walk, you too can help me raise funds with a generous contribution. For last year’s walk, we had over 800 participants and raised about $41,000! Nationally, there are over 160 Buddy Walks each year. Your tax deductible contribution will promote understanding and acceptance of people with DS.
This year, FRIENDS is not charging a registration for anyone who has Down syndrome! Now we have a new donation through this website it is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Check it out: www.crowdrise.com/waynetjones-friends16thannualwalk/fundriser/waynetjones. Many thanks for your support – and don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
If you would like to make a contribution, please send a check made payable to the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. to the address below. If you would like more information on the Buddy Walk and its programs their website is www.friendsoffredco.org.
