As a way to help raise awareness and money for the Down Syndrome Guild of Dallas the Armstrong Angels teamed up with teachers, parents, friends, classmates, and family for the 2011 Buddy Walk on Nov. 13 at Flagpole Hill. The group, sporting the green and gold of Armstrong Elementary, made a tremendous showing of support for the organization.
This year’s Buddy Walk drew a crowd of around 7,000 and raised more than $225,000. An estimated 7,000 people attended this year’s Buddy Walk, raising over $226,000. Armstrong Angels attend both general education and classes and LIFT (Learning Independence, Functional Academics and Technology) classes.
