Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit founded in 2008 by 2 siblings in honor of their brother who
has Down syndrome. It is our purpose to provide educational resources and promote public awareness
of Down syndrome by taking part in and conducting special events, namely conferences at sea.
These conferences will be a forum for prominent educational speakers addressing a wide range of
disability related topics. We encourage self-advocate sessions. Our events are not only supportive
of families touched by Down syndrome but other disabilities as well. Buddy Cruise, ideally,
will set sail each October, National Down syndrome awareness month, to honor those who are
touched by Down syndrome.
To provide educational opportunities and resources for families, while
promoting awareness, acceptance, and inclusion for individuals with Down syndrome through unique venues.
