We will be having a contest for who can raise the most money with their Buddy Page. So get creative, tell your story and reach out to everyone you know to support your loved ones with Down Syndrome and DSNO. Our overall fundraising goal is to provide these resources to families so rather than a prize we decided to go right to what parents tell us are their most pressing needs.

Raise the following amounts with your Buddy Page and earn the following rewards ~

  • $2,500 - Earns $120 toward 1 session respite or speech/behavioral therapy.
  • $5,000 - Earns 2 more sessions (total of 3 respite/speech therapy)
  • $7,500 - Wins 3 sessions of speech / behavioral therapist and an iPad for your child.
  • Grand Prize! - For the Buddy Pages that raises the most money - receive a night's stay at The Nines, dinner at Departure with childcare included.

Team Diesel

Our son Andrew has plowed into our hearts and souls like a diesel truck. Since the day he was born, our family has been anxious and excited to travel life's journey with him. We are blessed to be a part of Down Syndrome Network Oregon and love the strong ties that bring us all together.

This is our first Buddy Walk and we embrace this opportunity to support our community and contribute to a good cause. We want to thank everyone who has reached out to support us and our efforts to support these networks that aid other children and their families.

The Suzanna Bees

Our daughter Suzanne is a 12 year old with an extra chromosome and a zest for life, just like her BFF Corinn. Suzanne and Corinn share a love for cheerleading. When Suzanne was younger, we felt lost. One day, we found the Down Syndrome Network Oregon and it truly changed our life. We are supporting the Buddy Walk so that the DSNO can continue its mission to help individuals and families like ours. On September 25th, we will be walking in Lake Oswego. Won't you please help us help DSNO? Everything helps!

Team Nicole Williams

So where to start – I cannot believe it has been almost a year since the last Buddy Walk. Nicole has grown up so much since then. She/We survived her year as a 2nd grade at her new school! She loves school, even now during the summer she asks "school today?"
She will again go to a new school next year and is excited for her new teacher!

Again her favorite part of the whole school year was riding the “School Bus” every day. She learned so much.
Her vocabulary has flourished. She loves to tell you stories, of course the more excited she gets and the more she talks it

Aidyn’s Advocates

Our little Aidyn was diagnosed with Down Syndrome very early in pregnancy, and we found tremendous support from our new friends in the DSNO community. Born 10 weeks premature and undergoing surgery at only 5 days old, Aidyn is now a very strong, healthy baby boy. We have since began advocating for children with Down Syndrome, speaking with doctors, genetics counselors, and NICU providers regarding testing, the delivery of results, and providing more meaningful resources for parents like us. DSNO is an organization that has assisted us in finding support, community, and financial resource

Team Emma

Emma is the captain of her team, and our hearts. She is such a curious, loving and joyful little girl. She is a typical busy 2 year old, and we predict this year's Buddy Walk, will be more of a Buddy Run, while trying to keep up with Emma. DSNO helps provide resources and support to people with Down Syndrome, as well as their families. This year will be our 3rd Buddy Walk, and each year we have so much fun taking part in this event. We hope that you will come participate in this fun day, and support not just team Emma but all of the DSNO family.

Kennedy’s Krew

Kennedy...What an incredible gift we have been given. Kennedy has grown so much in the past year it has been quite the whirlwind to say the least! She enjoys pulling all her books off the shelf each morning before insisting we read them to her. This has led us to many trips to the library where she participates in sing-a-longs with her friends. A few other favorite past times for our sweet girl are chasing down her cat and dog siblings, playing in the dirt with an occasional tasting, doing "laundry", having dance parties with mom and dad, nursery rhymes, giving lots of kisses (even to stran
