Buddy Walk held at Reunion Ranch

Rockdalians joined the 10th Annual Buddy Walk, which benefi ts the Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas, on Oct. 25 at Reunion Ranch in Georgetown. The program focused on promoting awareness of Down Syndrome while raising funds for local programs, educational goals and advocacy efforts.

Former Rockdalian Laura (Burnett) Carlisle and her family have participated the past 7 years after her son Hayden was born with Down Syndrome. The event features children's activities, music and visits from celebrities and more.

Above, much of the Burnett and Phillips families of Rockdale pitched in at last year's Buddy Walk.
