2008 Buddy Walk!!

So I've heard about the buddy walk through several posts from Big Blueberry Eyes. It's a annual walk for Down Syndrome support and awareness and they are done all over the country. I figured they'd have one here in Memphis and I was right! I searched on the website and there is one here on October 19 of this year and I'm definitely going to walk in it. Of course I'll get my husband and some of my close friends to walk, but since I'm in pharmacy school and our ASP chapter frequently does things like this, for example we've done walks for diabetes, heart disease, and leukemia in the past, I figured I would try to get their support as well and get a real team going. I'm super excited about it and I hope to be able to raise some money! I would love to get my sister Janice down here to walk as well, but I don't know how well that will work. I want our team to be in her honor though, any ideas on a name?

They are wonderful to participate in - we started going when Kayla was just 3 months old! How great that you've found one in your area!
