This picture is too cute not to share. 3-year-old Aidyn Balmer will be among those featured in a video to be shown in Times Square in New York City next month. Here’s a bit more detail from the National Down Syndrome Society.

AIDYN BALMER of EVERETT, WASHINGTON, will appear in the bright lights of Broadway on Saturday, September 18, as part of the annual National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) Times Square Video presentation. The one-hour video of roughly 500 photographs includes children, teens and adults with Down syndrome from all 50 states. These collective images promote the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome in a very visible way.

The photo of AIDYN was selected from more than 2,100 entries in the NDSS worldwide call for photos. Her photo will be shown on two JumboTron screens in the heart of Times Square, thanks to the support of ClearChannel Outdoor. The presentation will be live-streamed on the NDSS Facebook page from 9:30-10:30am ET on September 18.

AIDYN is pictured in ponytails, wearing a bright sunflower dress with black cardigan, and a smile that lights up the world.

The Times Square Video presentation kicks off the flagship Buddy Walk® which has taken place in New York City since 1995 as part of the National Buddy Walk Program. Buddy Walk events are held in hundreds of cities across the country, as well as select international locations. This year’s New York City Buddy Walk will one again take place virtually due to ongoing complications caused by COVID-19. Information about the NDSS

National Buddy Walk Program and the NYC Buddy Walk on September 18, is available online at www.ndss.org
