Mark your calendars! It’s time for the 2016 Orange County Buddy Walk and this year’s event promises lots of fun for the entire family, all on a major league baseball field.
On Sunday, October 30th the Down Syndrome Association of Orange County (DSA|OC) will host its largest annual fund-raising event, the Orange County Buddy Walk at Angels Stadium of Anaheim in California. The Buddy Walk was first introduced by the National Down Syndrome Society as a way to bring together parent organizations across the country and to help raise awareness about individuals with Down syndrome. The Orange County Buddy Walk is one of the largest Down syndrome awareness events in the country bringing together more than 2,500 people.
Our friends at Chambers, Noronha & Kubota are proud sponsors of DSA|OC. Having served as a sponsor for this fantastic organization for 13 years, the Orange County Buddy Walk is one of their favorite events. CNK started supporting DSA/OC when their Office Administrator, Janette Mattson, gave birth to her daughter who was diagnosed with down syndrome. DSA/OC has supported Janette, her daughter and her family in so many ways that she also was compelled to give back to the organization by serving on the DSA|OC Board of Directors and is the current President.
“The DSA/OC Buddy Walk is one of the greatest events in Orange County,” says Gary Chambers, Managing Partner of Chambers, Noronha & Kubota. “This organization is the best place for individuals with Down syndrome and their families to obtain information and support. We have seen this first hand with how much they have done for Janette’s family.”
