EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2014
Hi everyone! Most of you are already familiar with Connor by now. I do talk about him a lot! He is the light of our lives. He has been through a lot in his 8 years. Many Dr. appointments and open heart surgery when he was 6 months old. But, as you know, it has not slowed him down. You know that, by all the "Connor Capers" that I post. He never has a bad day and loves to pass out hugs to everyone. He enjoys his programs at church, and just loves life.
On September 20th, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. will be hosting it's 13th Annual Buddy Walk at Baker Park in Frederick to raise Down Syndrome awareness as well as funds to support some great programs that benefit the Down Syndrome community. With the funds raised, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is able to host a yearly teachers conference, new iCan Bike camp, medical & enrichment grants, and much more!
So, please donate, if you can. Every bit counts. Thank you, and Connor thanks you!
Ready…Set…Walk! It’s time to celebrate this fun filled day with family and friends and celebrate all individuals with Down Syndrome! We will have activities the whole family can enjoy such as a petting zoo, moon bounces, fun games, entertainment, food, speakers, and much, much more! Awards for the “Top Fundraising Team” and “Most Creative” will be announced shortly following the walk.
