The Sky's The Limit - Captain: Shana Weinerman

Alexander's Angels envisions a world where individuals with Down syndrome are not defined by their disability but by their individuality.

Skylar was born on May 5th, 2005, that's right, a cinco de mayo baby!  We were shocked and surprised of her diagnosis of Down Syndrome.  It was very upsetting initially, however with time, we became accepting of the path we were taking.  Skylar has been through so many challenges that typical children do not always have to overcome.  She had open heart surgery , a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, several sets of tubes, visual deficits with a need for glasses, hearing deficits with a need for hearing aids, hypothyroidism, and recurrent strep.  She has been a trooper through it all!  She is strong as strong could be!  She is persistent!  She is affectionate with only a select few, but she gives the most amazing hugs and her laughter is the best sound you could hear!  She is one of the best two things that ever happened to us, did you guess Maya was the other best thing?)!  We come together each year to raise money and awareness for Down Syndrome and to celebrate the young lady Skylar is becoming.  We celebrate her achievements and the achievements of the entire Down Syndrome community.  We have come a long way and will continue to strive for more inclusion and acceptance and make this world a better place for all!  Please join us in our fundraising efforts and in our celebration!  We are proud to say we have walked as a team since the first Long Island Buddy Walk in 2007 and haven't missed a year.  We thank our supportive team members that come out practically each year and/or make a donation and we welcome new team members.  Let's make this our biggest team yet! Go "The Sky's The Limit"!

Proud Sponsors of Alexander's Angels 11th Long Island Buddy Walk
About the Buddy Walk

The Buddy Walk® was created by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.  The Buddy Walk® has grown from 17 walks in 1995 to over 250 each year with at least one in every state across the country and many abroad.  The Buddy Walk program is supported nationally by NDSS and organized at the local level by parent support groups and other organizations, schools, and motivated individuals. 

Alexander's Angels has been the organizer of the Buddy Walk® on Long Island since its inception in 2007.  In addition to sustaining the corporation, funds raised by Alexander's Angels benefit local programs and services, Down syndrome cognitive research, as well as local and national advocacy and awareness initiatives that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.

Alexander's Angels Mission
Alexander's Angels, Inc. Mission:  To further awareness of the contributions and needs of individuals with Down syndrome and to raise funds for advocacy, service, and research organizations.
