Designer Genes

Team Grady - Captain: Jamie Christensen
We invite you to join us in celebrating individuals with Down syndrome and other disabilities at the 2017 Designer Genes Buddy Walk on Sept. 23rd!  Fun, friends, and an opportunity to support the efforts of Designer Genes in promoting acceptance and inclusion start at 10:00 a.m.  At 11:00 p.m. join us for a celebration of potential and the walk. Whether you walk with our team or are there in spirit, your involvement is important.  Although awareness and acceptance are our primary focus of the Buddy Walk, should you choose to make a financial contribution, know that your donation helps to further our work to support individuals with Down syndrome and their families. #DGBW2017  #dgbuddiesrock

11 years of Buddy Walking!

This joyous awareness event is truly UNLIKE ANY OTHER.

Thank you for considering a donation as it does help our Designer Genes group accomplish SO MUCH each and every year.
But more than that -- this event brings education, awareness, support, celebration -- it's like the extra chromosome Christmas on overload.

More than anything, we hope you can join us to walk -- or be there in spirit -- as we celebrate the little things, the extras, each other, and our efforts as a society to open up, understand, accept and include.

Grady thanks you.

His family thanks you.
