The 11th annual SMILE on Down Syndrome Buddy Walk is happening this Saturday, October 6th at Vanderburgh 4H Fairgrounds. You can be a part of National Down Syndrome Awareness Month and help raise money for a great cause, a meet a bunch of great people!

The actual Buddy Walk, which starts at 10am, is a 1-mile walk through the grounds of the Vanderburgh County 4-H Center. Following the walk, there will be food, entertainment, fun activities for the children, an opportunity for team photos, and information tables for the adults.

This morning I had Nikki Davis in the studio to talk about the event. You can hear what she had to say below.
