Get Walkin'! Hi! I'm Ty! October is already 1/2 over - have you picked a local Buddy Walk® to participate in yet? October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month! In the spirit of spreading awareness for those of us with Down syndrome different support groups from here in California all the way to New York- WHOA! That is far!- sponsor Buddy Walks in their local communities. In 1995, 17 Walks kicked off the National Down Syndrome Society's first year of Buddy Walks, and since then more than 2 million people have joined a walk somewhere in their corner of the world. Wow! NDSS also sponsors "My Great Story", where Little Brother and I submitted our stories for you to check out. So get up, get out and get walkin'!
