Xavier To Participate In Annual Buddy Walk This Weekend
Sept. 4, 2012
CINCINNATI - This coming Saturday the Xavier men's soccer team along with other Xavier athletic programs will participate in the Greater Down Syndrome Association of Cincinnati 11th Annual Buddy Walk.
This fantastic event will take place at Sawyer Point on the waterfront and has over 4,000 participants, making it among the biggest of its kind in the United States. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. and the walk will begin at 10 a.m.
Last year the men's and women's soccer teams and baseball joined the walk and were part of Devin's Team, named after men's soccer head coach Andy Fleming's daughter who was born with the disease last year. Over 100 members on the team raised over $5,000 placing the team in the top 25 out of over 300 teams.
These three teams and other Xavier staff will participate in this year's walk. For more information about the Buddy Walk, or if you wish to donate to Devin's Team or the Greater Down Syndrome Association of Cincinnati, you can visit Buddy Walk Cincy and click on Devin's Team.
