Down Syndrome Walk Community Involvement!!

Name of Organization or Cause *
Down Syndrome Association of Northeast Indiana Buddy Walk

Gwennyth Simmerman* - National American Miss Indiana Princess.

Total Hours Served* - 4.5 hours

   My family and I volunteered to help the Down Syndrome Association of Northeast Indiana with their Buddy Walk. It is a great organization that promotes acceptance of people with Down syndrome. Even though it was a chilly day, I really enjoyed preparing and serving the food to all the walkers.

   It was a whole lot of fun and it made me feel good! I got to meet a lot of nice people and that was fun too! On that day, Mayor Tom Henry of Fort Wayne, Indiana declared the month of October to be Down Syndrome Awareness month. It was very inspiring and the greatest gift I learned on that day is that everyone should love you just the way you are! I can't wait to help again next year!
