Courtney from the United States
“People of colour with Down syndrome have a shorter life expectancy than others with Down syndrome.
I’m Down for healthy living and moving.
I am an Ambassador for African American girls and women with disabilities with Girl Trek.
We are walking into 2022 and walking for historic participation for people of colour in the 2022 Buddy Walk, my life depends on it.”
The best way to promote awareness of Down syndrome is for people with Down syndrome to share their own stories in their own words.
