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

  • The Buddy Walk is the largest ADVOCACY event for Putting Downs First.
    • In the past 9 years, through the support of our local walkers and those as far away as Texas, California and Hawaii, we have been able to spread awareness through out the United States.
    • The Buddy Walk is a celebration walk in which anyone can participate without special training. Come spend the day with friends and family to celebrate the accomplishments of those with Down syndrome.
