October 29 - pictures for Down syndrome awareness month

About a week and a half ago we had our Buddy Walk. Kansas City's buddy walk was the LARGEST in the world this year!! Over 7000 people showed up, and over $450,000 was raised. They are still taking donation thru the end of the year.


Here is a picture of our star: MAX!

It was a cool morning but it warmed up rather nicely by the time the walk started at 12:45.

How cool is that! I was in Nicaragua when we had our Buddy Walk, so we missed it :( Your walk sounds amazing...maybe we need to visit you for next years Buddy Walk ;)

I've never been to the KC walk, but Sean's classmates' family goes to it. I think such a large crowd would be too much for us!

It looks like Max had a great time!
