3rd Annual D.R.E.A.M. Buddy Walk This Weekend

The 3rd Annual D.R.E.A.M. Buddy Walk is coming up on Saturday September 8th at 11 AM at the Dinosaur Playground in Bozeman. It is the sole fundraiser for Down syndrome research, education, advocacy in Montana (D.R.E.A.M.). The funds raised every year go towards D.R.E.A.M. Grants which are given out twice a year to help families pay for medical expenses, therapies, tutors, adaptive equipment, etc.

This event is also an incredible way to celebrate the lives of those who have Down syndrome. It is a day to admire who they are and what they bring to their communities, friends, families and all who come into contact with them. We are so passionate about our children and family members with Down syndrome and our mission is to make sure that they are accepted and included in every way in their communities and schools.

The walk is a 1 –mile loop around the Gallatin County Regional Park and the celebration begins and ends at the Dinosaur Playground. Every year the event grows and the dollar amount raised goes up as well. We are so blessed and thankful to live in such a generous community who believes in what we are doing and embraces who we are. Last year we raised over ten thousand dollars and this year we hope to beat that number.  D.R.E.A.M. helps pave the way for our kids by helping with things like early intervention services, IPADS, and dance classes.

Registration begins at 10:30 AM at the Dinosaur Playground off of Oak Street and Davis in Bozeman. The fee is $10 and includes a t-shirt.  This year there will be live music from Sally Newsome, delicious burgers from Montana Wagyu Cattle Company and door prizes that include donations from Big Sky Resort among others. You can register ahead of time, make a donation or create a fundraising page on the non-profit’s First Giving page or go to for more information.

Listen to the awesome ladies that were on the show with us this morning!
