💛 Meet Ryder 💙

Ryder is 8 years old (in September) and he is in 1st grade. He lives in Scottsdale with Joe (Big brother 9), Andrea (Mom), Joey (Dad) plus Daisy and Luke (our dogs). He loves swimming, camping, school, number blocks and family time. He’s a thrill seeker and never says no to a waterslide or riding a quad/side by side. Most recently he learned that he loves to boogie board.

  • What does Down Syndrome Walk Arizona mean to you?
It means coming together as a community with friends and family to spread awareness and acceptance. The Down syndrome Walk Arizona means more opportunities and acceptance. This is our favorite and Ryder loves high fiving everyone along the way.

It provides so many programs for Ryder. Plus, DSNetwork brings the whole community together for many event which allows all of us to talk and help each other grow. I love meeting all of these people!
