On Saturday, October 19, over 100 children and family members gathered for the Fifth Annual Buddy Walk at Children’s Village! It was a great time (despite the weather!) to connect with, and celebrate people with Down syndrome. Many volunteers made our event extra special, including: the Eisenhower High School Photography club, cheerleaders and mascot. Miss Yakima County, Miss Apple Valley, Miss Yakima County Outstanding Teen and Miss Apple Valley Outstanding Teen. Smokey the Bear, McGruff the Crime Dog, Youthworks and Parent to Parent’s One-2-One mentors, Yakima Valley Farmworkers Clinic Dental program, and several amazing parent volunteers! Thank you for all of your hard work and support in making this event such a success!
