This is what it’s all about!  The one-mile Buddy Walk will be led by the DSNWV Buddies.

In an effort to remain unified in raising awareness for Down syndrome, we ask that you wear the DSNWV Buddy Walk shirt the day of the walk.

To show support for your buddy, decorate signs, wagons, strollers, make buttons or stickers with your buddy’s picture. Be creative and have fun!

Please join the DSNWV for the 2019 Buddy Walk and help us bring awareness to the community one step at a time!
