Alexander's Angels is a leading community based association advocating for persons with Down syndrome. This organization aims to raise awareness outside the Down syndrome community by continuing working with local colleges and with Down syndrome organizations in a collaborative effort to promote a better understanding of people with Down syndrome, including a commitment to support research aimed at improving lives for persons with Down syndrome. Alexander's Angels consistently meets a goal within its mission by supporting Down syndrome cognitive research, which is targeted to develop drug therapies that will enhance life opportunities for persons with Down syndrome through improving memory, learning and communication. Research Down Syndrome's interaction with Alexander's Angels has been a consistently positive experience.
Alexanders Angels Inc. is a wonderful organization that not only raises money for Down Syndrome but also allows there to be a platform here on Long Island from which we can advocate and educate others about Down Syndrome. My youngest son is 4 years old and was born with Down Syndrome. He is the love of our loves! Without such an organization it would be more difficult to spread the awareness of Down Syndrome and to show other families and the community how "normal' life is. Every year at the Buddy Walk my friends and family always walk away saying what a great day it was! The turn out is spectacular; it is a fun filled day for the kids. So thank you Alexanders Angels for your continuous hard work and dedication; and most importantly for helping make the future for our beautiful kids as great as ever!
