Team Joanna Landazuri
On Sunday, September 28th 2014, our family along with many friends will be walking in the 2014 Buddy Walk in support of the Down Syndrome Network Oregon and to show our support for the more than 400,000 individuals just like our daughter Joanna, born with Down syndrome in the United States.
As in previous years we want to do everything we can to make sure that individuals with Down Syndrome are given every opportunity to reach their full potential.
This is a chance for us to send a message of acceptance and a belief in the abilities and contributions of all people. Last year alone, over $10.5 million dollars was raised in the Buddy Walk nationwide for local and national education, research and advocacy programs.
We would like to ask you if you could please support us again in our walk efforts this year. So much progress has been made in the last 20 years, even 5 years, as far as realizing our children’s potential. Twenty years ago it wouldn’t have been imagined, but now, yes, many people are competing in Special Olympics, getting their degrees, working, living on their own and even getting married. What progress we’ve made!

Thank you very much for your support!
Carlos, Cheryl, Isabela, Carmen and Joanna
