Down Syndrome Buddy Walk 2012

For the fourth time, R2 appeared at the Down Syndrome Buddy Walk at Angel Stadium in Anaheim CA, to support Trevor Henricks (and his dad, fellow R2 Builder Matthew Henricks), and Trevor's Troopers.

R2 was joined by members of the 501st and Rebel Legion (and a fire hydrant).

We were stationed out in front of the stadium. Around 11:30am the Buddy Walkers started to arrive, and were quite excited to stop and take pictures with R2 and the characters.

After the walk was done, we took a short break, and then headed for the field for a group picture. It was tent-city, as the various support teams set up booths in the outfield.

And the group picture, complete with Trevor himself, inspecting R2 just to the left of the droid.

It was over 90 degrees today, not bad for November 4. Another enjoyable outing.
