DOWN SYNDROME ASSOCIATION OF BRAZOS VALLEY
April 10, 2012

This organization continues to be an integral part of the community. Besides providing information about Down Syndrome, it also promotes awareness and proclaims, rightly so, that we are more alike than different. The organization is continuously providing activities for children with Down Syndrome, and the attendance for the annual Buddy Walk grows larger every year.

DOWN SYNDROME ASSOCIATION OF BRAZOS VALLEY
February 15, 2011

The Down Syndrome Support Group of Bryan-College Station has given the community so much to be thankful for. The annual Buddy Walk is an opportunity to see first hand that indeed "We're More Alike than Different." You can actually feel the love in the air. The Association and its volunteers have done such a wonderful job in promoting public awareness that the Walk had to be moved to a different location in order to have enough room for all the participants!

A look at the calendar on the Group’s website shows the many activities that they are connected with and participate in from dances and camps to Special Olympics and seminars and beyond. In addition, the support that this Group gives to parents of Down Syndrome children is a much needed service. It lets parents know that they are not alone – that the support of other parents whose children have similar disabilities is immediately available and never ending.

The Great!
