October 25, 2009 was our first Buddy Walk! Our Down syndrome Family Alliance organized an excellent turnout! There were games for the kids, face painting, clowns with balloon animals, hot dogs, BBQ, free ice cream, beautiful weather and lovely fellowship! And the treat of the day, Chris Burke from the TV show, “Life Goes On” and his band! Very fun. I had the privilage of seeing him perform about 15 years ago when I was in Graduate School. I have to say I enjoyed it and his positive message to families about believing in your children and they can do anything so very much more today! All in all a good time was had by all and I look forward to the next DSFA event in December!
