Hello everyone!

Yes we will be starting our Walking With Friends walk again on June 3rd, 2019 at Lakeside Park in Kingsville upper park area at 6:00 pm.

We will be away for the month of May and look forward to seeing everyone when we return. If anyone is interested in getting a head start, please feel free to do so. We will be practicing our walking when we are on vacation

Things to remember from Andrew:
Wear comfortable clothing (his Group Hug Apparel shirts are pretty cool to wear), be prepared for the weather, drink plenty of water and most importantly is to smile and have fun because a posititve perspective on life is everything. I was born with Down syndrome but that doesn't define who I am or stop me from living life tot the fullest.

Enjoy your walk.

♥ ~ Andrew
