Down Syndrome Advocates in Action Nebraska
Ben's Brigade - Captain: Angie Willey
Thank you for supporting the Star City Buddy Walk!

We are so excited to have an official Buddy Walk in Lincoln, Nebraska again!  We feel strongly that all families who have a loved one with Down syndrome should have a support group where they are welcomed and accepted, where they have a voice and where leaders create timely programming that meets the current needs of the group.  Down Syndrome Advocates in Action Nebraska provides us with the support we need.  Ben loves going to DSAA NE inclusive events, because they almost always includes a gluten free option, so that finding alternate food for Ben is never a concern and they often encourage individuals with Down syndrome and their families to get out and be active in the community.   93% of the funds raised by the Buddy Walk stay local right here in Nebraska!  7% supports Down syndrome advocacy efforts at the national level and it is so crucial to have a voice in Washington D.C. during this time of political change. 

Ben is a 4th Grader at Elmwood-Murdock this year and enjoys playing basketball with his classmates and going to his big brother's high school games.  This past year was his first year as a real 4-her and he took home multiple purple and blue ribbons from the Cass County Fair.  He would love for you to consider supporting the Star City Buddy Walk, by registering as a walker, donating or both.  The Willey family appreciates your support!
