Gather your favorite Rock Stars and join your Down Syndrome Community for the Second Annual Pierce County Buddy Walk in Tacoma, Washington. The goal of this event is to raise money to develop a community center to help support our families and children. Your donation will help provide us with the opportunity to raise money towards beginning an organization focused on offering connections, supports and resources to our individuals with Down Syndrome. This will allow for all ages to be involved and connect with one another, while receiving supports, services and building friendships. Our children, of all ages, have been through many health obstacles, in addition to working harder to achieve their milestones. They are the true Rock Stars! So let us team together to build the community that they deserve!
The Pierce County Buddy Walk will start with a tailgating activity, where we can decorate our cars and celebrate, and then will take a trip around the track together. We will have multiple Buddy Basket Giveaways at the event along with other fun activities!!!!! In addition, we will have awards for the best Team Rock Band in town!
Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, take the first step and donate or register today! Help us spread the word; all are welcome for our day of celebration!
