Thank You!

Thank you to everyone that participated in our 2nd annual DSAT Buddy Walk on Saturday May 10th. We hope you had an unforgettable experience participating in the walk. You helped raise awareness of people with Down syndrome as well as raise funds for DSAT and CDSS.buddy walk_sm2
 

Your support and generosity will ensure programs and services as well as advocacy initiatives through DSAT and CDSS. As you may know, DSAT receives no government funding and relies on private donations to provide programming for the DSAT Community. The funds raised through the 2nd annual Buddy Walk will make a difference in the life of a child or adult with Down syndrome.
