This is Vivienne Kissler and she is one of this year’s Buddy Walk Ambassadors for the Down Syndrome Network Arizona! She has been a part of the Buddy Walk since she was 7 months. It is one of Vivienne’s favorite events where she loves to see her friends and meet new friends. Raising donations for DSNetwork is very important to her and her family.
“The programs and resources that are available to them through the DSNetwork are super helpful,” says her mom Mandy. “and to promote greater public understanding of people with Down syndrome is so important.”
Vivienne’s favorite part of the walk is marching down University Avenue and waving to all the fans along the parade route. This year will be a little different, but it will be very festive and exciting. “Even though we are in the middle of this crazy pandemic,” says Mandy, “Vivienne looks forward to getting back to being part of DSNetwork’s program such as Buddy Up Tennis and Tweens and Teens!
“Please help me by donating to the Buddy Walk,” says Vivienne while blowing virtual xoxo. “It would mean the world to me!! Remember, Together We Are ONE!”
