2012 Tucson Buddy Walk
We would like to thank everyone for coming out and being a part of this year’s 11th Annual Tucson Buddy Walk! We are in great appreciation of our sponsors. With your help and generosity, SANDS is able to con-tinue our mission to give back to the Down syndrome community and to promote public awareness.
Thank you to all the volunteers for your hard work. Without your help, many areas would not function properly and participants would have missed out on all the fun!
Thanks to the exhibitors for coming out and offering their services. The information you provided was very helpful to a lot of people.
A big thank you to Eegee’s, A La Carte Rentals, and Jump Maxx for once again donating a portion of their services to us. And to Awards to Go, for doing the T-shirts.
We would like to say a special thanks to those of you who helped plan this year’s event. It has been fabulous and great to work with you.
And of course the biggest thanks of all go to all the families that raised pledges! Your efforts are what make The Tucson Buddy Walk successful.
