What is the Buddy Walk? The Buddy Walk has become the premier advocacy event for Down syndrome in the United States. It is also the world’s most widely recognized public awareness program for the Down syndrome community.  The Buddy Walk program was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome and to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. The name Buddy Walk promotes inclusion between friends of every ability.

The National Buddy Walk Program has grown from 17 Walks in 1995 to over 250 this year!  This global event now has over 295,000 participants raising more than $12.1 million last year. When you support the Treasure Valley Down Syndrome Association (TVDSA) Buddy Walk, you help create awareness and acceptance for people who have Down syndrome in the Treasure Valley.  And by supporting the TVDSA, you help us provide programs and education to families and advocate for those with disabilities.

Support a friend who has Down syndrome or come to meet one that day!

Time to be Thankful

Time to be Thankful

With Thanksgiving around the corner, it is important to slow down our minds to reflect with a
thankful heart. Teaching children to be thankful enhances their happiness, attitude, and
increases positive behaviors. It encourages children to focus on being considerate and
appreciative. As adults, it helps us as well with all the above because we need a reminder too,
right?!

I encourage families to create a Thankful Box this holiday season. As a family come together
each night and identify what you are thankful for. This can strengthen the family attachment,
teaches mindfulness, encourages openness, and provides gratitude.

Items needed:
 Kleenex box
 Construction paper
 Markers
 Scissors
 Glue

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
