I am a mother to Maximus, a 5 year old boy with Mosaic Down Syndrome. Until I became involved with the Buddy Walk or Alexanders Angels, the only Down Syndrome support we could find was what was written in articles or Doctors. We firts joined the Buddy Walk 3 years ago and fell in love with all the participants and more importantly the Down Syndrome children they were there to support. The Buddy Walk is all about acceptance and just being around people who can relate to some of the issues a family and Down Syndrome participant face. Alexanders Angels brings advocacy groups to the walk where we are able to get tons of resources for Down Syndrome programs, they display artwork made by Down Syndrome individuals and live performances by Down Syndrome children and adults. They create a forum where these individuals don't stand out because of their DISABILITY but stand out because of their incredible ABILITIES!! I have met so many great families through the Buddy Walk and my friends and family look forward to the Buddy Walk every year.
