Standard

One of the events that we love going to in our Down syndrome community is the annual Buddy Walk. For many Down syndrome organizations this is the number one way to raise funds for their organization that helps families in their area.

After taking a few years away from participating in the Connecticut Down Syndrome Congress’s Buddy Walk, due to the craziness of our lives, I decided it was time to form a team again. There’s nothing more heart warming than seeing hundreds of people all come together to celebrate our beautiful children.

October is Down syndrome awareness month and I can’t think of a better way start off teh month by walking in a Buddy Walk. The Buddy Walk here in Connecticut is on Saturday, October 1st at Rentschler Field in East Hartford. Registration opens at 11am and the walk steps off at noon.

If you are local here in Connecticut and would like to join our team, we welcome you with open arms to join Joey’s Jamboree. You can register on our team’s website.
