Welcome to our 2019 Columbus Buddy Walk® team fundraising page!

Johnnie has brought us so much joy this past year and we can't wait to share all of the wonderful and amazing things he's been doing with you! Stop by one of our fundraising events or the Walk to give him a high five. He will brighten your day with a laugh and smile for sure!

We can't wait to join thousands of other participants at The Fortress on Sunday, September 29th, 2019 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 Johnnie 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!

Johnnie had a great check in with his pulmonologist today! Seems like we are finally making some progress with his apnea. Sleep study round 4 in September 😴 ••• 📷 by sister ••• #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #downsyndrome #sleepapnea #t21

Johnnie faced some hard core yard salers today and it was weird. But we made over $300 for @dsaco_cbus! This includes the 85 cents in pennies that a woman paid for a large bag of tea lights that were priced at $1. Hey, a bargain’s a bargain, even if it’s for a good cause, right?!?! 🤷‍♀️ This was also our last day with Grammie & Steve and we will miss them terribly! Thank you so much for all you do @caroleleewyatt 💙💛💙

Johnnie had his first dentist appointment today! We highly recommend @clintonvillepediatricdentistry! Dr. Jillian is kind, gentle, patient, and caring. She explained that people with Down Syndrome are less likely to get cavities, but more prone to gum disease. Time to instill good flossing habits! 🦷😬 #nothingdownaboutit #t21 #theluckyfew #dentalhygiene

Swimming lessons today! Another fun way to do therapy without the “therapy!” Johnnie and I both get a workout and build muscle while splish splashing. He absolutely loves it and his teacher was impressed with his butterfly stroke today! 🏊‍♂️🌊 #swimming #theluckyfew #physicaltherapy #nothingdownaboutit💙💛 #t21

Did you know Buddy Walk funds help support scholarships that @dsaco_cbus provides to families? This spring we received a generous scholarship for a Music Together class. Johnnie’s favorites were the sticks, drums, and free dance. We had an absolutely amazing 10 week session and learned a lot about music literacy, which has helped Johnnie’s speech skills! He learned how to say “boom” and “bom” and makes and beautiful crow caw now. This class was better than any therapy session we’ve ever been to. Thank you @dsaco_cbus for making it possible! Click the link in profile to contribute to our Buddy Walk team and help keep these scholarships going. 🎵🥁🎺🎶 #musictherapy #musictogether #theluckyfew #t21 #nothingdownaboutit💙💛

Our third trip to the ER this year (plus one for Juni!) 🤦‍♀️ Johnnie just has a virus, but it came with an intensifying rash. When I told the on-call doc that the rash was starting to look purple she told us to come in immediately. After a thorough check everything seems okay, all he needs is some rest as it runs its course. 😓

Today we went to the @dsaco_cbus summer picnic at the zoo! Johnnie got to see some of his very good buddies and Juni had a blast. I can’t begin to explain how good it feels to be a part of #theluckyfew DS community in Columbus. This event made us feel very grateful today. Funds raised for the Buddy Walk go to support the annual summer picnic and many other events and programs. Donate today! Link in profile.

Johnnie is lovin’ life and enjoying summer, especially after finally getting some antibiotics for his chronic cough! Thank goodness for his ENT 💙
