I am so excited to share that our family photo was chosen this year to be a part of the National Down Syndrome Society Times Square video that kicks off October, which is Down Syndrome Awareness month.
Our photo was selected from more than 2,400 entries, and almost 500 photos were displayed in the heart of Times Square. It was an incredible sight to see the gathering of family and friends who were supporting their loved one with Down syndrome.
The Times Square video presentation kicks off Down Syndrome Awareness month in October. It’s a month of bringing awareness for acceptance, understanding, and inclusion for all individuals with Down Syndrome. The video presentation followed with the Central Park Buddy Walk. W
We are happy to say that our team “Jacob’s Joggers” was in the 8th place ranking for the team raising the most money. With our 17 member team of family and friends, we are proud to announce that we raised $1,725 (our goal was $1,000). So we want to say thank you to all those that supported us in this cause by either showing up to walk, raise money or just cheering us on!
Let us share some pictures from our day.
When you have family and friends to support you, you can accomplish anything! Go out and make a difference today!
