MADISON, Wis. - Oregon boy William Umhoefer was selected out of over 2,000 entries to appear in the National Down syndrome Society's annual Times Square video presentation Saturday in New York City.

Umhoefer, pictured swinging and smiling, will be featured in the video with almost 500 other photographs that aim to promote the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.

Featured photos include children, teens and adults with Down syndrome, and are meant to remind people of the contributions and milestones of people with Down syndrome.

The presentation kicks off Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October.
