Safely Expanding Our World, 2020 Buddy Walk

2020 Buddy Walk is well underway and we have enjoyed seeing everyone's photos and videos. Teams have celebrated with walks in their neighborhood, at a park, having a pizza party, and hosting a virtual dance party. This year looks different than most but it hasn't been any less! 

As a friendly reminder, remember to wear a mask and keep socially distant if you are celebrating with more than your immediate family! 

Keep sending us your photos and videos to [email protected] so we can see all the fun. Thank you to Jackson's Journey and Eli's Eagles for sharing!
