Walk with a buddy to benefit the Rio Grande Down Syndrome Network

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Join the Rio Grande Down Syndrome Network for a day of family fun and festivities celebrating the abilities and accomplishments of New Mexicans with Down syndrome.

The Rio Grande Down Syndrome Network will hold its annual Buddy Walk Saturday, September 26, 2015 on the North Grounds of the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.

This will be an entire morning of fun for the community. The event starts at 9 am, with late registration, check-in and warm up.  The walk itself, which loops around the Balloon Museum grounds, begins at 10 am. There will be live entertainment and activities starting right at 9 am and running up until noon, including New Mexico Wise Fools, Susie Tallman & Friends, Gymboree, face painters, jugglers, awesome food trucks providing delicious food, and much more.

The Buddy Walk was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to kick off Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. Today, the Buddy Walk program is supported nationally by NDSS and organized at the local level by parent support groups, schools and other organizations and individuals.
