U10 player Camille J. has played for BRYC for the past nine seasons and has always shown herself to be a very enthusiastic participant. This summer Camille's family, and some 2,000 others, submitted photos to the National Down Syndrome Society, representing "inclusion", one aspect of the Society's mission as the "...national advocate for the value, acceptance, and inclusion of people with Down syndrome." Camille's photo, in which she is proudly wearing her BRYC soccer jersey, was one of only 200 chosen to be displayed during the Society's Buddy Walk in New York City in September. When Camille went to New York with her family to participate in the walk, her picture was up on the jumbotron in Times Square for all to see.
Congratulations to Camille and her family for their participation in the NDSS Buddy Walk..and thanks for increasing the visibility of BRYC!
