Buddy Walk for WRDSS

Today was the annual Buddy Walk in support of the Waterloo Region Down Syndrome Society.  A group of my family members participated to support my nephew Oli.  The organizers put on a fun event which featured the 3km walk around the Stanley park area of Kitchener, face painting, balloon creations, and children's entertainers.  It was nice to see so many people supporting their friends and family who are living with down syndrome.  After the walk Oli was recognized as one of the top 10 fundraisers, claiming 7th with a total of $1405 (special recognition goes to Oli's mom and dad - Jenn and Blake for their fundraising efforts).  Below are some pics from the event.  The kids face painting was phenomenal.  Clara requested to be a dinosaur, and Ella an owl.  Clara was so funny, running around roaring like a dinosaur.  It was perfect.  We'll be back next year!
