What Is Buddy Walk?

The Buddy Walk® was developed by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. In 2014 there are nearly 275 Buddy Walks planned nationwide. Buddy Walk 2017 will be held on September 30th at Crew Stadium in our hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

We invite you to walk to show our support for Henry and more than 400,000 other individuals with Down syndrome in the United States. Every dollar we raise brings us one step closer to ensuring that Henry and every individual will have the opportunity to reach their potential. Our fundraising efforts will support local programs and services provided by the Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio, as well as National Down Syndrome Society advocacy and public awareness initiatives that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome. Please consider joining us on September 30th to walk for Henry!
