ABOUT LUZERNE COUNTY DOWN SYNDROME BUDDY WALK
The Luzerne County Down Syndrome Network came together in 2005 with the goal of organizing Luzerne County's first annual Buddy Walk. Through events such as the National Down Syndrome Society’s Buddy Walk, LCDSN’s mission is to advance acceptance and inclusion of people with Down Syndrome while raising funds for qualified local and national non-profit education, research and support programs. Because of the generosity of the community and guidance of The Luzerne Foundation, the group was able to sponsor activities such as swim lessons for people with Down Syndrome at the YMCA, Dance lessons for children with Down Syndrome, Art and other programs such as summer camp tuition assistance and Music Therapy. The Down Syndrome Network was also able to provide information to those touched by Down Syndrome by contributing books and resource materials to the Arc of Luzerne County’s library and with information packets available to new parents.
