What is the Buddy Walk?
We’re so glad you asked! Since 1995, Buddy Walks have been held all over the country each year as a national effort to improve the lives of all people with Down syndrome. All are welcome to participate! Our fundraising goal this year is $50,000. These funds go toward providing resources to families and programs such as speech therapy camp, a swim program, and social events for adults with Down syndrome.
