About the Buddy Walk

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. Today, the Buddy Walk® program is supported nationally by NDSS and organized at the local level by parent support groups, schools and other organizations and individuals.

Getting Ready for Buddy Walk 2020!!!

Buddy Walk® 2020 will be held this year at the Gulfport Sportsplex on October 17th. We need your help and support to fulfill the mission of reaching out the members of our community with Down Syndrome. You can help us reach farther and faster than we ever have before!
