The Walk! 

This is what it’s all about!  The Buddy Walk will be led by YOUR Buddy in YOUR community. Choose your walking route in your neighborhood, local park, or street in your hometown. Be creative! You can make signs, have friends and family to join you in a socially distant walk, ask local businesses to sponsor you as you raise awareness in your community. Take pictures and videos and send them to DSNWV to be featured on the Facebook page during Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October.  

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 2020 Buddy Walk and help us bring awareness to the community one step at a time! Although we can't be together in person this year, we encourage you to participate in our largest outreach and fundraiser of the year!
