The Buddy Walk is our primary fundraiser that allows us to continue supporting local families of individuals with Down Syndrome. We use these funds to pay for recreational activity fees, informational packets for new parents of babies with Down Syndrome, conference fees, fund family social events, and summer camps. This year, we want to increase our support to families by offering scholarships for children with Down Syndrome to receive educational opportunities at recognized schools such as Immaculate Conception Catholic School, Aparro Academy, and others.
We wish to surpass prior fundraising efforts with a goal of $25,000 this year, and we need your help by creating a Buddy Team, joining a Buddy Team, sponsoring our event, donating a silent auction item and/or volunteering your time at the event!
