Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan

2018 DSGSEMI Annual Buddy Walk


Dear Friend,

The Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan (DSGSEMI) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.  Established in 1989, we have a long history of responding to the changing needs of individuals with Down syndrome and their families.  We serve individuals, families, caregivers, educators, and medical personnel in nine counties in southeast Michigan (Genesee, Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw, and Wayne).  Our constituency is composed of over 250 individuals of all ages with Down syndrome, 900 family members, and over 200 local professionals.

We are requesting a monetary donation to support our Buddy Walk on Saturday, September 22, 2018.  The Buddy Walk is the DSGSEMI's single largest fundraising event and by far the largest vehicle for spreading Down syndrome awareness and bringing the community together to celebrate the unlimited potentialof persons with Ds.  The proceeds from our annual Buddy Walk funds over 80% of the DSGSEMI's programming and our (future) scholarship program.  A current DSGSEMI program list is attached.

Should you require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Gale  at 248.388.0014

Kind Regards,


Gary N. Koutsoubos
