Who is D.R.E.A.M.?

Down syndrome Research Education Advocacy in Montana

We are a diverse group of parents in the Gallatin Valley and surrounding areas with young children with Down syndrome. Initially, we connected to celebrate the joys and concerns that come with having a child with Down syndrome. Since then we have all realized the importance of having a network of friends and resources and wanted to reach out to others who may be in our same situation. We like to meet once a month to get our kids together to play and to visit with each other about Down syndrome specific topics.

Feel free to call or email any of us with questions, concerns or just to chat. We would also love to invite you to join us at one of our “get togethers.” Just send your email to any one of us and we will let you know the time, date and location of our next meeting.

Best Wishes and Rainbows,
The D.R.E.A.M Team

The 6th Annual DREAM Buddy Walk will be held at the Gallatin Regional Park Dinosaur Playground on Saturday, October 3rd, 2015. Registration begins at 10am and the 1-mile walk begins at 11am. This is a great family event and all are welcome to come join the fun! The cost is $10 and includes a t-shirt and lunch. There are kids' activities and music as well! The Buddy Walk celebrates individuals with Down syndrome and promotes acceptance and inclusion. The money raised goes to support grants for individuals with Down syndrome in our community.
