Come Buddy Walk With Us!

 

Team Bella's Buddies! will be participating in the 9th Annual Wichita Buddy Walk on Saturday, October 13, 2012.  This fun-filled family event begins at 11:00 a.m.on the beautiful Heartspring campus, located at 8700 E. 29th Street North (between Rock and Webb Road) in Wichita.

 

 

My name is Isabella and I am 7 years old!  I had a super fun summer playing t-ball, going to movies, swimming, and playing at the park.  So far, I am having a great school year in the second grade at Mission Trail Elementary. I love going to school everyday....I learn a lot from my teachers and paras, and I enjoy spending time with my friends. I am enrolled in two dance classes, swimming lessons and Girl Scouts.   I enjoy watching Hannah Montana, The Cheetah Girls, and High School Musical.

I want you to know that my family will be walking at the 2012 Wichita Buddy Walk to raise awareness about Down syndrome.  I hope you can walk with us, donate, or both!  The Buddy Walk will be held on Saturday, October 13th from 11am-2pm at Heartspring.  I would love for you to join my team, Bella's Buddies!  Enjoy the one-mile walk and the free festivities following -- carnival games and cool prizes, music, dancing, moonbounces, an obstacle course, face painting, clowns, a teen room, cheerleaders, fire trucks, a photo booth and a mobile game den!

My family and I appreciate your support in helping us improve the lives of individuals with Down syndrome.  Last year’s Buddy Walk was a huge success!  We had over 3,000 walkers and raised over 80,000!  Please help us reach this year's goal...any donation, big or small, really will make a difference!

Thanks for supporting the Down Syndrome Society of Wichita and Bella's Buddies!

Love, Isabella

The Buddy Walk® was created by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. The Buddy Walk has grown from 17 walks in 1995 to nearly 250 walks planned for 2012 worldwide. In 2011, more than $11.5 million was raised nationwide to benefit local programs and services, as well as the national advocacy initiatives of NDSS that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.
