Greater Charlotte Buddy Walk
BACK TOGETHER AGAIN!
OCTOBER 30, 2021
As our largest fundraiser of the year, the Greater Charlotte Buddy Walk provides about 50% of the needed resources for the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte to fulfill its mission. Every day we make meaningful strides to foster inclusion and to celebrate the lives of people with Down syndrome. There is no better way to celebrate people with Down syndrome than taking part in our 24th Annual Greater Charlotte Buddy Walk!
WHAT IS THE BUDDY WALK?
Historically, The Buddy Walk, developed by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) in 1995 to celebrate October, National Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and provide an annual public platform for advocacy, is a one-mile walk in which anyone can participate without special training. Hundreds of thousands of people walk from coast to coast and around the world each year. The goal of the Buddy Walk is three-fold: to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome; to raise the funds necessary to develop innovative and effective programs; and to enhance the position of the Down syndrome community, enabling us to positively influence local and national policy and practice.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING TO SUPPORT OUR MISSION!
See you in October!
