Virtual Buddy Walk Benefits Down syndrome Association of South Texas
Like so many non-profit organizations this year, the Down Syndrome Association of South Texas (DSASTX) is reworking event plans to respect the safety of the community and COVID compliance. As a result, the 20th annual BUDDY WALK will be held VIRTUALLY on Saturday, October 17. This year’s participants will be asked to walk in their own neighborhoods, at their own pace, and post videos and photos online to show support for DSASTX.
With income down 62 percent this year, the BUDDY WALK is critically important. Funds are raised through sponsorships as well as individuals forming teams ‘walking’ to honor a loved one with Down syndrome.
The goal is to raise $200,000. The registration fee is $10; if you cannot participate but would like to donate to the Down Syndrome Association of South Texas, please select the DONATE button online at www.DSASTX.org.
Down Syndrome affects more than 1,275 families in San Antonio and surrounding areas. DSASTX is there to assist with support groups, educational programs, fun activities and more.
“We are honored to have Kym’s Angels Foundation as our presenting sponsor,” says Brian Lopez, executive director for Down Syndrome Association of South Texas. “We share similar programming goals and with support from sponsors like Kym’s Angels we are able to provide virtual activities for those home-bound during these difficult times.”
