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 festivities immediately following the walk - food and drinks, a basket raffle, carnival games and prizes, music, face painting, a teen room, moonwalks, an obstacle course, cheerleaders, clowns and a fire truck! There is no fee to participate in this event.
