Hello Friends, Family, and Buddy Walk enthusiasts!
We are happy to keep up our annual tradition of the Buddy Walk in support of Ryland as well as in support of the remarkable DSAGC organization in our Cincinnati community.
Ryland completed preschool last year and by the time the Buddy Walk rolls around he will be a kindergartner. He will happily continue at Little Miami schools where he is a bit spoiled as he's treated like a celebrity by many teachers, staff, and fellow students. His progress in preschool was quite good as his preschool teacher noted he was at most of the markers a typically-developing kid would have when entering kindergarten. Ryland also continues speech therapy at Cincinnati Children's hospital where he seems to make progress at each visit.
On a travel note, this year Ryland spent 3 weeks in Australia & New Zealand where he pet kangaroos and wallaroos, Myrtle Beach where he appeared glued to the constantly lapping ocean waves, and Disneyworld where he road on as many rides as he possibly could.
Ryland enjoys playing make-believe games with his siblings, eating Graeter's ice cream (his famous quote is "Ice cream, table, now!"), jumping on any trampoline, fidgeting with things that are floppy like rubbery strings, reading about Pinocchio, and watching TV shows on Disney Jr/Nick Jr such as PJ Masks, Muppet Babies, and Mickey & the Roadster Racers.
We will also walk in memory of Bob "Pap" Popson who cherished this event each year, as well as Dolly "Mamaw" Plummer who never participated in this event but would have loved every minute of it.
Please join us and Ryland who will be leading our team in the 2019 Buddy Walk, which is the DSAGC's main fundraising and awareness event, gathering over 15,000 participants.
