PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- The Peekskill girls varsity soccer team volunteered at the Down Syndrome Buddy Walk on Oct. 18 at Dutchess Stadium.
“It was awesome,” said Coach Cami Basso. “There were so many good things happening all around. We also want to say a big thank you to the Montauk Bus company who generously donated a bus for us to go to the event. It would have cost us nearly $1,000 out of our budget if we had to pay for it ourselves.”
The National Down Syndrome Society established the Buddy Walk in 1995 in celebration of Down Syndrome Awareness Month and to promote inclusion and acceptance.
Coach Basso and her team will also play in Sectionals for the first time in years.
