  September 16th, 2017  

Perkins Park, Warren, Ohio

The Buddy Walk is a one-mile celebration walk around the park with friends, families and buddies! Over the past 10 years, this day has included bounce houses, fairies, princesses, music, dancing, games, face painting, basket raffles, art galleries and so much more! The purpose of the Buddy Walk is to advocate in the community for acceptance and inclusion of those with Down syndrome while celebrating their dreams and talents.

Last year's walk was a huge success with friends and families coming together to celebrate. We held a fashion show sponsored by Target, created art work as a community, and continued to build a family within our community!
