For the past four years, players from the WWII Online community and CRS staff have chosen to support the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) and the Down Syndrome Association of Atlanta (DSAA) by sponsoring a buddy walk held in Atlanta, Georgia.The Buddy Walk was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. Participation by WWIIOL players from around the world has resulted in thousands of dollars in donations to the charity.


Longtime player and community supporter Bobby "Tenpin" Thanepohn and his wife, Jennifer are behind the effort to raise money and awareness for the NDSS and will again be walking in the this year's fundraiser. Tenpin recently posted in the WWIIOL Player Discussion Forums;


 "Hello Everyone.

In a month I will be participating in the 2010 Atlanta Buddy Walk in support of my stepson Preston and to help raise funds for the Down Syndrome Association of Atlanta..

Every year for the past 4 years The Rats have generously partnered with, and allowed me, to reach out to our community and once again I need your help. I can gratefully say that every year this community has come through for Preston and I hope that we can do even better this year.

I need support from each of you to reach, or exceed even, my goal of $1000 this year. You can show your support with a donation of as little as $5.00. Just $5.00. Less than the cost of an extra value meal.

If you're here in the Atlanta area I'd really love for you to come and share just this one day with us and walk with Preston. (This will be the third year that one of our fellow WWIIOLers and his family will be joining us BTW).

If any of you have any questions about DS please ask.
Thank you,
Bobby "Tenpin" Thanepohn
