Last Saturday (August 25, 2007) my kids and I joined our friends in the 2007 Buddy Walk, in Manitou Springs, Colorado – Organized by the Colorado Springs Down Syndrome Association (CSDSA). I believe that there were a couple thousand people joining us on our 3 mile hike around Manitou Springs, and to date they have raised $101,690 … Wow!!
Manitou Springs is a beautiful town, just west of Colorado Springs and nestled in the Rocky Mountain Foothills.
We all started at Memorial Park and continued down Lovers’ Lane, up Park Avenue, all down Manitou Avenue and looped back up El Paso back to Memorial Park.
My 4 year old walked the entire time, and my older one loved getting folks that were driving by to HONK to show their support.
This is the second year that we have participated in the Buddy Walk, and we look forward to supporting the CSDSA next year!
To offer YOUR support, please contact Julie Harmon at (719) 633-1133 or firstname.lastname@example.org
