Just as we did last year, we will be participating in the 2008 Buddy Walk. This years walk will be October 18th. I am excited this year the walk will be in October...that is Down Syndrome Awareness Month! The Buddy Walk was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Octobers month of awareness. The walk is only 1 mile long. We had an incredible turn out last year. We raised over $1500, this year my goal is $1000. We had a team of over 25 who walked in memory of Gabi. We would love for anyone to join us for the walk. But if you are far or cannot make the date we would greatly appreciate any donation towards our team.
Every step we take, every dollar we 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.

Simply click on the link below and it will take you to our team page! Remember big or small, every donation counts!

If you do join our team you will receive a t-shirt with our team name, Gabi's Grace, on the back, you will also get lunch and there are lots of activities for the kiddo''s great fun!
