The Buddy Walk

Yesterday was a beautiful, sunny fall day for the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress' Annual Buddy Walk. The MDSC members registered 2,000 plus walker and raised over $230,000. It was wonderful to see so many people gathered together to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. Pictured below are Dr. Brian Skotko, who tirelessly advocates for people with Down syndrome, and Karen Gaffney, who is an accomplished swimmer and inspirational public speaker and self advocate.
And, of course, our inspiration....
