One of the event’s organizers, Christina Schye, is not only an Advocate, but a mother to 5-year-old Kellan, who is diagnosed with Down syndrome. Billings’ first Buddy Walk coincided with Kellan’s first birthday where he celebrated with 500 people who raised $10,000 to help local families. Now, we’re once again all invited to participate and support families in our community.
