Designer Genes Buddy Walk 9/18/10

Registration begins at 10 a.m. with walk to follow at 11 a.m. – Find more information at www.DesignerGenesND.com  

The main purpose of the Designer Genes Buddy Walk is to raise awareness of the potential of individuals with Down syndrome to live, learn, work and contribute to their community. Our main effort is not fundraising, which is why our walk is a little different than some of the other walks.

The walk is approximately 1-mile, and makes three loops around the Capitol Mall symbolizing the “tri-” in Trisomy – the chromosomal abnormality that causes Down syndrome. The general public is encouraged to attend and show their support for people of all abilities. No registration fees are collected from walkers. The walk is to promote Down syndrome awareness and is supported by well-appreciated community sponsors

The Buddy Walk has three primary goals:
To promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome;
To raise funds for education, research and advocacy programs; and To enhance the position of the Down syndrome community, enabling us to influence local and national policy and practice.
