A Special Message From "Benjamin’s Buds"

Benjamin likes to be the "star of the show" and lights up any room he is in. He cares deeply about others and wants people to be happy. He is stronger than we knew possible and an inspiration to all. Nobody has ever met him and left feeling "down". This year we will not be present at the walk due to other commitments, but still wanted to have the team created and raise any money we can. We appreciate all the support and love you all, thank you for being a member of Benjamin's Buds.
