We can’t believe this will be Leo’s second Buddy Walk! What a year it’s been. Some big accomplishments Leo has achieved since the last Buddy Walk: He is bear crawling everywhere, standing on his own, has several teeth, and last but not least... Leo has not had to use his feeding tube for several months now! It’s mom and dad’s call on when the gtube will come out. We’re thinking it will be a great 2nd birthday gift to us all! 
Although the Buddy Walk will be virtual this year, we are still honored to support the Down Syndrome Association of Pittsburgh. 

We wouldn’t be here without the help of Leo’s doctors, therapists and his family and friends consistent support. 
The Down Syndrome Center at CHP has given us the confidence and assurance that Leo is on the path towards better health and a positive life. Dr. Vellody has been our go to for all things dealing with Leo’s health and development. He is the most caring, concerned, and knowledgeable pediatrician around! Our quality visits with him wouldn’t be possible without the Down Syndrome Association of Pittsburgh. DSAP provides resources and events for families around Western Pennsylvania. Your donation to Leo’s Buddy Walk Team will go directly to DSAP. We’re so lucky to have the community that we do. Please consider making a donation to Leo’s Buddy Walk Team to support the DSAP. 
Thank you in advance. 
Love & Light,

Leo, Alexa, and Ben.
