Hello friends and family! Please join us in supporting and honoring Kylie at this years Buddy Walk! Kylie loves having you all there, and your support means more to her and I then you will ever know.

April 2, 2004 the day Kylie was born changed my life forever.  I never knew what my journey from there on out would consist of.  I am so grateful to have Kylie as she is and all she brings to my life. She is full of spunk, charm, and sassiness I never imagined she would have. Daily Kylie shows everyone around her that she is more alike than different. Kylie wouldn't be Kylie if it wasn't for her extra chromosome. I am thankful everyday for who she is and the amazing young girl she is becoming. I am proud to say Smiley Kylie is my daughter and that she was born with Down syndrome. :-)

Why We Are Walking.

The Buddy Walk was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.

The Buddy Walk is a one-mile walk in which anyone can participate to help celebrate the many abilities and accomplishments of people with Down syndrome. Enjoy the festivities immediately following the walk - food and drinks, a basket raffle, carnival games and prizes, music, face painting, a teen room, moonwalks, an obstacle course, cheerleaders, clowns and a fire truck! There is no fee to participate in this event.

Team Smiley Kylie is participating in the Buddy Walk to show our support for the more than 350,000 individuals with Down syndrome in the United States. Every step we take, every dollar we raise will help ensure that each individual with Down syndrome in the United States will be given every opportunity to reach their full potential.

Will You Join Us?

Your involvement in the Buddy Walk - by walking with us or by sponsoring our team - will make steps for a brighter tomorrow for individuals with Down syndrome.

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.
