The Canton Area Buddy Walk (Formerly known as the North Canton Buddy Walk) is designed as both a local fundraiser and a community event. The emphasis is not on the actual walking, but on bringing families together to enjoy a fun filled day while also raising funds to further opportunities for those within the Down Syndrome community. Monies raised from this event will directly support individuals and families with Down Syndrome through programming and activities, tutoring, adoption assistance and more.
Join us on Saturday, September 9th for the 2023 Canton Area Buddy Walk®! This is a fun-filled day to celebrate the Down Syndrome community. 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! There will be a short walk followed by a ceremony of celebration.
