Alina is now six years old and about to finish Kindergarten. This year will be Alina's fourth year participating in the Down Syndrome Association's Buddy Walk. Alina puts a lot of effort into trying to walk an extended length and she tries her best to complete the 1.5 mile trek. Sometimes she tires quickly and must finish the walk in her stroller but, there is no doubt that she is very excited and amazed at the end when she receives her medal!
The Buddy Walk is designed to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. It is also an opportunity for us to raise money for our local Down Syndrome Association so that they can continue to offer programs and services.
We thank you for your support of Alina and the Down Syndrome Association of NWI.
