Laramie’s 2011 Buddy Walk One Of The Biggest Yet

The  Wyoming Down Syndrome Association’s (WYDSA) Wyoming Buddy Walk promotes acceptance and inclusion of people with Downs Syndrome. This  years walk was one mile long and over 1000 people registered to be a part of it. The walk is open to everyone . Money raised from the event will pay for the walk, an annual conference in Casper and a number of other WYDSA programs. The event also raises Down syndrome awareness within Laramie and the state.  This year’s event featured live music from Danno, games with prizes, and refreshments including popcorn, snow cones and cotton candy.  A number of guests were on hand including an annual visit from Senator John Barrasso, an enthusiastic speech by new head basketball coach Larry Shyatt, a visit by the UW Cheerleaders and Pistol Pete, tours of the Laramie Fire Department vehicles and face painting. Caspers Christopher Orr was picked as the Walk Leader this year and had a smile on his face the entire day. The walk winds from Washington Park to the Tailgate Park at War Memorial Stadium. At the end of the walk all of the walkers are treated to a box lunch, the annual Best Buddy announcement and then tickets to the Wyoming Cowboy’s game against the Weber State Wildcats.
