Welcome to our 2019 Columbus Buddy Walk® team fundraising page! 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 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: $696.00
My goal: $10,000.00 6%

Alex and his sister, Addie, won Best Narration for the film they submitted for the Hyatts Film Festival! Their film is called “Not Me,” and illustrates how Alex is breaking stereotypes people sometimes hold about Down syndrome. Alex was also recognized for his recurring segment on Eagle News. We are so proud of them!

Alex was feeling so good after his haircut this afternoon at @kennethshairsalon that he insisted on taking flowers home to his sister. What a guy! 😉

Alex had a fun, busy night! Track meet (where he had a cheering section!) and Future Bear Night at the high school he’ll attend next year. He met coaches, teachers, and the principal and started signing up for clubs for next year. 💙
