Welcome to our 2018 Columbus Buddy Walk® team fundraising page! We can't wait to join thousands of other participants at MAPFRE Stadium on Sunday, September 30, 2018 to celebrate all of our fundraising success! Please stay tuned for more information about our team regarding upcoming fundraising opportunities and our team's tailgating plans for the day of the walk. 

With over 250,000 people in the United States with Down syndrome, we strive to provide tools and opportunities that promote awarenessacceptance and inclusion in our communities. Every dollar we raise brings us one step closer to ensuring that our child and every individual will have the opportunity to reach their potential.

Our fundraising efforts will support local programs and services, as well as National Down Syndrome Society advocacy and public awareness initiatives that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.

Make your tax-deductible donation today and take the first step toward helping us achieve our goal. Thank you for your support!

Our Funds Raised: $13,264.00
My goal: $15,000.00 88%

Alex had a great day at school, where he worked hard on his video news project. Then, he had fun volunteering for a Student Council event, where he saw an old friend. What an awesome way to start a weekend!

Alex was so happy to join his @oohsmenssoccer pals at their banquet tonight. One of the senior captains introduced the varsity players, giving thoughtful remarks to each one. Once the team had been introduced, the captain shared some very kind words about Alex, too.

When we were leaving, I asked Alex if he had a nice time. “Yeah,” he said, “but I’m really going to miss my friends next year.” Each year, the seniors really make an impact on him! 
Once again, we’re reminded of the power of inclusion and how awesome it is for Al to have these guys (and their families!) in his life. 🧡 ⚽️ 💙

Today is Alex's Heart Day. Fourteen years ago, Dr Galantowicz at @nationwidekids performed open heart surgery to repair our 3.5 month old's heart. Scariest day of our lives, but now we are forever thankful to Al's entire team that day for giving him what his cardiologist still calls a "perfect repair".
