    • Bug spray…..we are outside and….it’s Texas.

Individuals with Down syndrome are free and everyone else is just $15.00 for a day of fun, plus a t-shirt (if registered by deadline). Buddy Walk is an event where anyone can come set up a tent or canopy, bring lawn chairs or blankets and if you don't want to purchase food from a food truck, you can bring your own picnic.

Your support of Buddy Walk enables a variety of educational and social programs throughout the year to benefit people with Down syndrome, from birth through adulthood. This year, our funds will go to support our education and outreach programs. 

We can't do what we do without all of you who attend, our volunteers and our sponsors. You are making a difference to people in all of Brazos Valley! 

Check out the great food trucks that will be at our event!
