What a day! We had a great time at the 14th annual Buddy Walk. Everyone enjoyed Brotherhood on the main stage and Rich Birdsall as our event MC. Local organizations like The Magic Paintbrush Project and Maple Glen Farms: Endless Possibilities provided great fun. The food was rolling off the line as fast as they could serve it and the basket raffles proved to be a returning favorite. The walk extended through the zoo with all the animals to see along the way and a squad of excited cheerleaders waiting at the end, congratulating the walkers with smiling faces and shining medals. One of our new special guests was caricature artist Jon Bonfed who was a huge hit with a line that never slowed down.
On the heals of such devastating flooding, it was a privilege to offer The Buddy Walk as a fun opportunity to take a break from the labor of clean up and to strive forward with our mission to raise awareness for Down Syndrome and support our community.
