Down Syndrome Association of Northern Virginia Buddy Walk
On Sunday October 1, 2017 through the coordination of Brother Wayne Weeks, Knights from Family of Man Council 7566 and a spouse volunteered to provide free shuttle service between parking lots and the venue at George Mason University for the annual Down Syndrome Association of Northern Virginia (DSANV) Buddy Walk®. Funding from the Buddy Walk allows the DSANV to provide individuals with Down syndrome and their families with educational, financial, medical, legal and social support and resources. Members from our Council have provided volunteer assistance to this event since it began 14 years ago.
Council members who volunteered for this event included brothers Wayne Weeks, PGK Jim O'Brien, Mark Mandrgoc and his wife Mary, Thomas Pachan, Mark Pearson and PGK Steve Saiget.
The Council would like to thank the efforts of Brother Wayne Weeks and PGK Jim O'Brien for their dedicated efforts in the providing this volunteer opportunity to our Knights and their family members over the years.
