Buddy Walk 2009

This past weekend I had the honor of being a volunteer photographer at the Omaha Down Syndrome Parent Network (ODSPN) Buddy Walk. Last year John and I went as participants to support our friends Chad and Tracy, whose sweet baby Bella was born with Down Syndrome.

The walk was lots of fun despite the horrible weather and it was so nice to see the large turnout. Even though I took tons of candid photos, I'm only going to include some pictures of people I know (since I don't have permission to publish photos of others).

I absoultely LOVE what the Bella's Buddies t-shirts say on the back.

Even the furry friends came out to walk.

Bella enjoys being carried around the UNO track by her friend Marty.
