The annual Buddy Walk® in Bloomington is more than a walk, it's a family reunion. Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does or just want to show your support – we invite you to join us on October 2nd for our 15th Buddy Walk® in Bloomington, as we unite for a common cause and raise funds to support Down Syndrome Family Connection. October is Down Syndrome Awareness month, so what better time to celebrate! 

This year, we are excited to be back together at the Monroe County Fairgrounds, which has a totally accessible paved walking path for our walk route. We'll have some fun before the walk, then reveal our brand new 2023 “Beautiful Faces, Extraordinary Lives” calendar and introduce the models. After walking the route, we get to enjoy rock ‘n’ roll classics covered by the band Don't Call Me Betty; food trucks will be available, so you can have a picnic on the lawn while you listen to the band or show off your dance moves!

Follow DSFC's facebook page for announcements about our Buddy Walk, and share the info with your family and friends and invite them to join your team! Remember to order shirts before 9/8 to be able to pick them up at the walk.

Ready, set, go…  let's celebrate!
