The York Area Down Syndrome Association held its 15th annual Buddy Walk to benefit its mission of helping people with Down Syndrome. Many people got the chance to speak about what it's like to have the condition, while others got to spread awareness about it. Organizers said this month is not about focusing on disabilities, but celebrating accomplishments.
"Today's a very important day for us because we want to promote inclusion and acceptance of all individuals with Down Syndrome," Carolyne Fodor, Preside of the YADSA, said. "Just to know how much we appreciate them and their support through the year, and we look forward to see them all next year."
The organization hoped to raise $63,000. For information to make a donation, click here.
