PhoenixTeam joins the effort to impact the down syndrome community of Jacksonville, FL. Since 2018, we have sponsored the annual Down Syndrome Association of Jacksonville (DSAJ) Buddy Walk. There are approximately 350,000 individuals living with Down Syndrome in the United States, making it the most common occurring chromosomal condition. Those with Down Syndrome often have several intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Buddy Walk is a way to bring awareness, share stories, and raise funds while celebrating these folks. The one mile walk down beautiful Jacksonville Beach gives our team members an opportunity to participate and meet some of these amazing human beings. As a sponsor, and with our die-hard belief in I.D.E.A., we help create a community where all people with Down Syndrome are actively included, given opportunities to participate and contribute as valued citizens, and have the choices to create their own paths to fulfillment and success. We look forward to continuing to support DSAJ and their mission to creating a community that is educated, supportive, and inclusive of individuals with Down Syndrome.
