To find out more about the group that Ben's Brigade is choosing to support this year, go to http://bensbrigade.weebly.com/
UPDATE: Apparently some groups don't like when people encourage others to stand up for what is right and hold the group accountable to follow their mission statement. We planned to walk with our local Down syndrome group to celebrate Ben, even though we were donating to a different group. Unfortunately, our local DS group deleted our walk team and have not responded to any of my emails. Any group that would exclude a child with Down syndrome from a walk that is supposed to be a celebration for them, is not a group that is being supportive to it's members. The new board is making a clear statement. They do not provide support for individuals with Down syndrome, their families, friends, etc. They only provide support to those individuals with Down syndrome who's families don't rock the boat, don't ask too many questions, don't make suggestions to try to move the group to the next level.
