Welcome to our 2018 Columbus Buddy Walk® team fundraising page! We can't wait to join thousands of other participants at MAPFRE Stadium on Sunday, September 30, 2018 to celebrate all of our fundraising success! Please stay tuned for more information about our team regarding upcoming fundraising opportunities and our team's tailgating plans for the day of the walk. 

With over 250,000 people in the United States with Down syndrome, we strive to provide tools and opportunities that promote awarenessacceptance and inclusion in our communities. Every dollar we raise brings us one step closer to ensuring that our child and every individual will have the opportunity to reach their potential.

Our fundraising efforts will support local programs and services, as well as National Down Syndrome Society advocacy and public awareness initiatives that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.

Make your tax-deductible donation today and take the first step toward helping us achieve our goal. Thank you for your support!

Are you meal planning for the week? Don’t forget to give yourself a night off on Monday, and head over to Chipotle (near Marcus Crosswoods) from 4-8p to grab dinner and support Team Alex and @dsaco_cbus!

Remember: you most show this flyer to the cashier before you pay (showing your phone works!), AND you must order and pay in the store in order for your purchase to count. 
Thanks for supporting Team Alex 2018!! #teamalex #columbus #buddywalk #fundraiser #chipotle #burrito #burritobowl #dineanddonate #cbus #columbusohio
