Volunteer Leadership Opportunities!

We seeking professionals to join a Volunteer Leadership Committee for the LOOK! and Buddy Walk fundraising events. Both events are held in the greater-Columbia area.

LOOK! is a photography exhibit featuring children with a disability. Professional photographers volunteer to host photo shoots capturing candid moments of the child doing things they like to do best. The photos are unveiled at an opening-night ceremony. The exhibit remains on display at the featured venue. The intent of LOOK! is to showcase the beauty and unique abilities of these children and to help people see disability in a different way. LOOK! is planned for June 2021.

Buddy Walk is part of our recognition of Down Syndrome Awareness Month each October. Family and corporate teams raise awareness and funds online. Then Family Connection celebrates their efforts and recognizes “Special Buddies”, top fundraising individuals and teams during a festival-like, family-friendly walk, and awards ceremony. Buddy Walk 2021 is planned for early November, 2021.
