May 24, 2004
The 3rd annual Buddy Walk will be held on Saturday, Oct 2nd. Registration is 11:30am and the walk starts at 1pm.
The Buddy Walk was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to promote awareness and inclusion for people with Down syndrome. It is a wonderful, heart-warming event in which thousands of people from coast to coast and around the world participate each year!
The Buddy Walk celebrates October, National Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and is sponsored by NDSS, local parent support groups, schools and other organizations.
The goal of the walks is to promote understanding and acceptance of people with Down syndrome. Whether you have Down Syndrome, know someone who does or just want to show your support, come and join the Buddy Walk.
Anyone can be a buddy!
