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.


See you in October!
