Join Gabi's Groupies, at the 2007 Kansas City Buddy Walk on Saturday September 22!
The Buddy Walk was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.
The Buddy Walk is a one-mile walk in which anyone can participate without special training. It is also a huge family festival and a day of fun for all! It is a wonderful, heart-warming event that celebrates the many abilities and accomplishments of people with Down syndrome.
I'm participating in the Buddy Walk Family Festival to show my support for the more than 350,000 individuals with Down syndrome in the United States. I want to do my part to make sure that each individual is given every opportunity to reach their full potential.

Every step I take, every dollar I raise will help ensure that each individual with Down syndrome in the United States will be able to do just that. Last year alone, over $5 million dollars was raised nation-wide for local and national education, research and advocacy programs. Locally, we raised over $300,000 to benefit more than 850 families in the greater Kansas City area
If you can't make the walk, you can also simply make a donation to the team by clicking on the "Donation to the Gabi's Groupies" link.

We thank you for your generous support of Gabi's Groupies.
We look forward to seeing you Saturday September 22, 2007 at the 12th Annual Buddy Walk!

Hey guys, do you have flyers for the walk? If so, I would like to have them to hand out in my salon and help you all achieve your goal. My family and along with my salon, Creative Hair Designs staff would LOVE to help you! We plan to pass it onto our clients, who know about Gabi already.
Hope you are doing ok today. How is Gabi today? Oh Micah, you look soooo cute with your new haircut! Glad you are getting out and spoiling yourself. You deserve it girl! We still continue to pray for all of you.
Love, Angela Cain-Arnett
