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.

Kennedy’s Krew

Come help us celebrate our Kennedy! In just 6 short months Kennedy has changed the lives of all who know and love her. She is full of the cutest giggles (especially when her daddy is around). Although anyone who spends 5 minutes with this little girl is sure to witness her gigantic smile and contagious laugh. She loves to play with mommy's hair, meet new people, go for naps in her stroller, watch her dog brothers, snuggle, practice her singing voice, explore/taste new toys, and now different foods!

In the first few months after birth, we had to keep Kennedy in seclusion to keep her

Dixon 6.0!

Each year as we approach Buddy Walk season, we are given the opportunity to reflect on all of the awesomeness that Dixon has brought to our lives. He loves to swim, tell knock-knock jokes, wrestle with his buddies, kiss the ladies, and sneak ice cream and ketchup every chance he gets. Dixon remains loyal to his Toy Story friends, and won't go a day without them (going on four years of these guys). He is learning to ride a bike and is showing interest in sports. Overall, Dixon loves to laugh and brighten the day of everyone around him.

Please join us as we celebrate the pure heart

Eli’s Buddies

Our son Eli Kerr will turn 18 in just a few days!
Ten years ago Bruce and I could just never imagine the man he has turned out to be.
No one could have told us that the day would come when he would be so independent, so calm, and so joyful.
He brings the exclamation mark into the room no matter where he is.
All of his accomplishments, including ushering at our church, acting in his high school plays, participating in high school sports, and mostly just being Eli, have been a slow and steady community effort of friends, family, teachers, doctors and therapists.

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 1st grader with school all day. She had so much fun at school. She loved her teacher, Aide, as well as all the kids and the excitement of being in school.
Again herfavorite part of the whole school year was riding the “School Bus” every day. She learned so much. She can
count to 50! She is really starting to understand certain words and what they actually spell. She can write her name first and last! She can write s
