Buddy Walk Event to take place in Second Life on March 21, 2010
In real life the Buddy Walk is a one-mile walk raising awareness and collecting pledges to benefit Down Syndrome. In Second Life it will be a bit different, there will be a path to walk, but the main festivities will be the all day entertainment. There will be live singers and live DJs throughout the day. Kiosks will be available throughout the venue where donations will be collected. All funds collected will go directly to NDSS (National Down Syndrome Society).
Scheduled to appear are: AMFORTE Clarity [live singer], Sylar Morrisey [live singer], DJ Splash Kidd, Phemie Alcott [live singer], DJ JL, DJ ETC, more to be added soon! Festivities start at 1:30p slt.
This year the walk will be held on March 21, which is also World Down Syndrome day. The date was picked because individuals with Down syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st gene.
