Acosta Bridge in Jacksonville to be lit up in yellow and blue to honor Down Syndrome Awareness month

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Acosta Bridge in downtown Jacksonville will be lit up in blue and yellow this weekend to honor Down Syndrome Awareness month.

The Down Syndrome Association of Jacksonville (DSAJ) said the annual Buddy Walk event, which helps the organization raise funds for local families who have loved ones with Down syndrome, will still go on as planned, but in a new format, to ensure safety amid the coronavirus pandemic.
