The Lowcountry Down Syndrome
Society is a family support group to benefit people with Down
syndrome and their
local leadership in support, outreach, education and advocacy.
I am glad to introduce our family support
group for anyone touched by Down syndrome in the greater
Savannah/ Lowcountry area. Candy and I joined with
other families to start our support group in
We quickly grew and now outreach to families in
the eight surrounding counties. Our meetings are every 4th
Tuesday of the month- typically with a guest speaker and
social time for families to meet and interact with one another.
We encourage people to bring their children. We are an affiliate
of the National
Down Syndrome Society.
We had our first Buddy
Walk - which
was wonderfully successful - at Forsyth Park in downtown
Savannah in October 2006. Nearly 1,600
people came out to support Down syndrome awareness, and nearly 4,000 attended our eighth walk in 2013. Our ninth Buddy Walk is planned
for October 4, 2014.
