Kellie's Koalas - Captain: Eileen McAuliffe

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

Kellie and her sister, Carmel, joined our family in 2001. Whenever Kellie had a choice for a stuffed animal, she always picked a koala bear, and all of them are named KK, for Kellie's Koala. So naturally, that was the inspiration for our team name for the first Long Island Buddy Walk, sponsored by Alexander's Angels.

Kellie attended ACDS, one of the beneficiaries of the Buddy Walk. They are a wonderful organization and she was well prepared to enter kindergarten when she graduated from there.

She enjoys swimming, bowling, art, playing her drums, strumming on her guitar, and anything pink, princess, or Peter Pan!

Thank you for your support for Kellie's Koalas and the Long Island Buddy Walk for Down Syndrome Awareness.

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.
