2013 Buddy Walk

This month is Down syndrome awareness month- one of my favorites 🙂
For those of you looking for details on the Houston Buddy Walk, look no further!!

We sold shirts sponsored through theidsc.org this year and I couldn’t be more in love with them. I had hoped to sell more, but given that I went back to work, have a newborn, am pregnant and got super sick, that didn’t work out as I had planned.

Our fundraising is nearing the end and we haven’t met our goal. If you are interested in helping, any amount makes a difference. The DSAH has been an amazing resource for our family and the community. We are proud to belong to such an awesome group.
Help us reach our goal, or walk with us in November! 🙂

We plan to arrive around 11:00-11:30. The lot is small and there are TONS of people. We will be wearing our shirts and will walk together at 1:00. Hope to see you there! 🙂


Come Join us, on Sat, 11/9, at the Diamond Lot in Minute Maid Park, in downtown Houston from 10AM-2PM.
Walkers can arrive by 10am to enjoy the rides, on-stage entertainment, the gift shop, vendors and delicious food. The walk is scheduled for 1pm!

Your involvement in the Buddy Walk, either by walking with us, or by donating, will help make a brighter tomorrow for all individuals with Down syndrome.

We will walk, every year, for our child, for us, for our whole family – for every friend that we have made at the Down Syndrome Association of Houston – for every one of their beautiful children – and for every new baby that shows up at our community meetings with their proud parents. We will walk and help to raise awareness so that our children with Down syndrome, are accepted as a wonderfully normal part of a very diverse community.
