Scrubs star John C. McGinley wears his heart on his wrist

Fans of the sitcom Scrubs may have noticed John C. McGinley, who plays the hilarious acerbic Dr. Cox, wearing a multi-colored bracelet on his wrist. This is the official Buddy Walk bracelet, which John wears to show his support for the program. The Buddy Walk was created to raise funds and awareness for the National Down Syndrome Society.

John has a very personal connection to this program– his adorable 8-year old son Max has Down Syndrome. As John says on the Buddy Walk website, "Max has taught me that people with Down syndrome are more LIKE the rest of us than they are different. They have feelings, talents and dreams just like everyone. And they deserve to be accepted and appreciated for who they are and what they contribute to our communities." According to his proud dad, Max is "fun, smart, and silly. He loves to play with his friends, draw pictures, and go to school." To help Max and other kids like him, visit the Buddy Walk website and find one in your area.
