The Baltimore Buddy Walk is the largest local fundraiser and also the most-recognized Down syndrome awareness event in the area! We walk (go team Hug Life!) to fundraise for our community and bring awareness for all individual with Down syndrome... like Lily! All funds go directly to the Chesapeake Down Syndrome Parent Group (CDSPG) to support activities, seminars, community events and educational resources for our community. The group has supported our family through the stressful baby days and all of the scary unknowns; what's an IFSP or IEP? Goals, accommodations, therapies, what?!?!? HELP!?!? The unknowns are terrifying and having a community to not only provide the emotional supports, but also the educational resources through seminars and classes every step of the way has helped guide our family, and many others as we advocate for the very best for Lily.
We welcome your support, and would love to have you join our team and spend the morning of October 5th (also my birthday!) walking with us and the community. It is a wonderful event and so much fun for the family, so join us in celebrating and raising awareness for those in our community with Down syndrome!
