Why We Are Walking 

The Buddy Walk was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.

The Buddy Walk is a one-mile walk in which anyone can participate to help celebrate the many abilities and accomplishments of people with Down syndrome. Enjoy the free festivities immediately following the walk - carnival games and prizes, music, dancing, basket drawings, face painting, moonwalks, a teen room, an obstacle course, cheerleaders, clowns and a fire truck! Food is available for a minimal donation. Picnicking is welcome.

Team Team Sammi is participating in the Buddy Walk to show our support for the more than 350,000 individuals with Down syndrome in the United States. Every step we take, every dollar we raise will help ensure that each individual with Down syndrome in the United States will be given every opportunity to reach their full potential.

Will You Join Us?

Your involvement in the Buddy Walk - by walking with us or by sponsoring our team - will make steps for a brighter tomorrow for individuals with Down syndrome.
