This weekend, my mom, sisters, and I are participating in a Buddy Walk! The purpose of a Buddy Walk is too raise awareness and promote understanding, acceptance and inclusion of people who have Down syndrome. Buddy Walkers also raise money through sponsers and donations and those funds go toward education, advocacy programs, and research.
October is Down syndrome awareness month and the Buddy Walk is a wonderful program that gets people active and aware.
In my Diversity class, we are giving a presentation on a "new experience", and I will be talking about the Buddy Walk. I'm gonna take lots of pictures, so I'll post some up here after the walk. =]
I'm so excited!
