$14,418 Raised $20,000 Goal

Join Down Syndrome Family Connection as we unite for a common cause and raise funds at the 2021 Buddy Walk® in Bloomington. Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, take the first step and donate or register today! Help us spread the word; all are welcome to join our celebration!  DSFC is very excited about the modified plan for a socially-distanced fun event… this year's Buddy Walk will be a ride instead of a walk! Click the EVENT tab above for more details. 

To get started, just select the "REGISTER" button to start a team, join a team, or register as an individual. Additional family members can be added by selecting the green "Add Another Registrant" button during Step 3.  After you register, you can start your team or personal fundraising page by selecting the "Fundraising Page Set Up" button at the top of the online receipt.

Team Captains please note:  Make sure to provide your user name and password when prompted during registration to have access to your team and donor information from last year. Click here for instructions.

If you cannot participate in this event but would like to make a donation to Down Syndrome Family Connection, please select the DONATE button. You can also direct your donation to the total raised by an individual or team by visiting their fundraising page under the TEAMS/PEOPLE tab.
