From the [Cherry Hill, NJ] Courier-Post:
This weekend’s New York City Buddy Walk will feature high school varsity athlete Brad Hennefer giving a golf clinic for kids with Down syndrome on the Great Hill in Central Park. The clinic will be broadcast on the big screen on Times Square.
Nineteen-year-old Brad, of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, played varsity golf and basketball in his public high school and is now a student at Camden County College. He is believed to be the only varsity boys’ basketball player in the country with Down syndrome.
The Buddy Walk, sponsored by the National Down Syndrome Society, kicks off Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. Similar walks will be held around the country.
