EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2015
October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month! Here is F.R.I.E.N.D.S Frederick, Maryland is presenting the 14th Annual National Down Syndrome Society Buddy Walk on Saturday, September 19th. 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 14th 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 $42,000! Team Hailey Bug raised $1,426!! Woo Hoo!! 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 and they will receive a different color tee shirt than the rest of us so that they standout in the sea of people. 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: https://www.crowdrise.com/waynetjones-FRIENDS14thAnnualB/fundraiser/waynetjones for CrowdRiser. Many thanks for your support – and don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
