Buddy Walk to End #LawSyndrome – Coming to a Congressional District NEAR YOU!
What IS the Buddy Walk® to End #LawSyndrome?
This event does not include a walk or festival-like activities that may occur at your local Buddy Walk® and it is not a “hill-day”, like the Buddy Walk® on Washington Advocacy Conference. It is a local, in-district grassroots strategy effort during election years coordinated by our advocacy and policy team at the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS).
Stacy’s fitness journey started when her son, Marcus, was very young. Originally, it was something for her to do to reconnect with herself outside of being a mom. Sometimes, Stacy would exercise while Marcus would sleep and other times Marcus and his sisters would exercise alongside her. Her ultimate dream was to reach Ironman distance, and she knew that she wanted to set an example for Marcus and her three girls: that anything is possible.
