Las Vegas local Braelah Perkins will appear in the bright lights of Broadway on Sept. 12 as part of the National Down Syndrome Society's annual Times Square Video presentation.

The featured photographs highlight children, teens, and adults with Down syndrome, reminding the world in a very big way about the contributions and milestones of people with Down syndrome. These collective images promote the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.

The photo of Braelah was selected as one of 500 photographs that will appear in the video, streamed on NDSS social media from the heart of Times Square.

The Times Square Video presentation kicks off Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. The video presentation will be followed by the New York City Buddy Walk, which will take place virtually due to COVID-19.

Buddy Walk events will be held virtually in more than 150 cities across the country, as well as select international locations, this fall with over 325,000 people participating around the globe.
