Mickey and Friends - Captain: Michael OConnell

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

Welcome Mickey and Friends team and donors!

Some of you may or may not know but this is the 11th annual Long Island Buddy Walk. Mickey and his family have been at every single walk. Mickey himself was still riding along with Mommy when we attended the first walk in October of 2007. He was born 4 months later in February of 2008. We are so lucky to have the love and support of so many great people in Mickey's life as well as ours.

Mickey has had his own team of doctors, nurses, specialists, therapists, teachers, aides, and of course his big sister Samantha helping along the way since day one. But you all have been the key to it all. You love him and cherish him, support him and encourage him each and everyday. In return he shows us all what love, compassion, and enthusiasm for life can do. Joy, in its most basic form. He shows us how to simply be happy. 

Mickey's favorite thing in life is singing Happy Birthday.. to ANYONE.. Mickey shortens it to Happy Day as most of us know. That's why we are running with the hashtag #HappyDay for all things Mickey and Friends. All social media pictures and posts for our team, try to remember #happyday.

Thank you all for your support, donations, and love!

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.
