NEW YORK, New York — Logan Rylee Cox of West Chester, Ohio, formerly of Stanford, will appear in the bright lights of Broadway Saturday, Sept. 15, as part of the National Down Syndrome Society’s (NDSS) annual Times Square video presentation.
The video presentation highlights 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 Logan, 15, the son of Lynn Cox and the late Rodger Cox, was selected from more than 2,400 entries in the NDSS worldwide call for photos. Almost 500 photographs will appear in the video, which will be shown on a jumbotron screen in the heart of Times Square.
Logan, who is the grandson of Pam Cox, Edith Cox and the late Ronnie Cox of Stanford, will be representing his home state of Kentucky and the Kentucky Down Syndrome Association of Central Kentucky community as well as West Chester, Ohio, and Christ’s Church Mason. He represents Lakota West High School and proudly wears his Kentucky blue shirt in the photo to honor his favorite team, the University of Kentucky Wildcats.
The Times Square video presentation kicks off Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. The presentation will be followed by the 24th Annual Flagship Buddy Walk in New York City. This year, Buddy Walk events will be held in more than 275 cities across the country as well as select international locations, with over 325,000 people participating around the globe.
