Buddy walk 10/3/09 - Saturday

Come join us and walk for awareness and inclusion for people who have Down syndrome.

Saturday October 3rd at Maritime Heritage Park in Bellingham. Registration starts at 11 am with the guest speakers starting to talk around 11:30 and the walk actually begins shortly before noon.
There will be LOTS for kids to do! A tactile area with bird seed to play in. Games with prizes for everyone. There is even a silent auction area where items such as "Family Movie Night" or "Restful Chrysallis getaway" are up for bids. The proceeds of the event go toward Down syndrome outreach of Whatcom county. Special events for families are held throughout the year like... in the past there was a guarianship seminar and a concert starring Chris Burke. The DsO has always had fun events for families and people with Ds.
We are helping out on the donations for the Buddy Walk and got to meet the nice folks at Walmart. They really enjoyed the letter about Tommy and how the DsO has helped us so much. They gave a big check to help fund the Buddy Walk!
Tommy LOVED their staff meeting and just maybe we left a few soft hearts there! He was laughing, signing songs and RUNNING throughout. Thanks to one great donation WalMart.
See you next Saturday at the Buddy Walk!!!
