Anyone can be a Buddy!

The Buddy Walk® was developed by the National Down
Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome
Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and
inclusion of people with Down syndrome. The Buddy Walk has
grown from 17 walks in 1995 to nearly 300 walks planned for
2011 worldwide. In 2010, more than $11.2 million was raised
nationwide to benefit local programs and services, as well as the
national advocacy and public awareness initiatives of NDSS that
benefit all individuals with Down syndrome

Whether you have Down syndrome,
