Our North Alabama group BUDS, will be hosting our 15th annual Buddy Walk September 30, 2017. The goal of the Buddy Walk is to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. The funds raised at the walk will allow BUDS to continue their efforts to support and educate families about Down syndrome, and also reach out to the North Alabama community. The walk will include a “Chinese Auction” of items such as various gift baskets and gift certificates. There will be inflatables, music, sno-cones, a photo booth, free lunch and much more! The walk and lunch are free, however, donations are greatly appreciated.
We are currently asking local businesses to donate items, gift baskets, gift cards, etc for our auction. These are tax-deductible donations and a receipt for your donation will be provided.
There were over 500 participants at the walk last year, and BUDS is hoping for an even bigger crowd this year. So mark your calendars and please spread the word to support BUDS and all of the families touched by Down syndrome.
Also, if you know of any groups/people that would like to volunteer, please let us know as we can always use the help!
Be a buddy and walk! CONTACT: Buds@budsonline.org for more information.
