Posted on in category Positive News

This should make you feel good on a Monday. Bend’s very own Alyvia is a superstar. Here’s the link to the KTVZ story.

A Bend girl will be seeing herself on the big screen in New York City’s Times Square to help kick off the National Down Syndrome Society’s annual Buddy Walk.

Eight-year-old Alyvia Hallman and her family head to New York City for the event on Sept. 14, where her photo will be featured in an accompanying video presentation shown in Times Square.

Her mother, Celeste Hallman, entered Alyvia’s photo in the NDSS worldwide call for photos for four years in a row. Out of the 3,000 pictures submitted, Alyvia’s was one of the 500 selected photos.
