Join the Down Syndrome Society of Mobile as we unite for a common cause and raise funds at the 10th Annual DSSM Buddy Walk®. 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 for our day of celebration!
The Buddy Walk® was developed by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. The Buddy Walk® has grown from 17 walks in 1995 to over 250 walks globally and 330,000 participants in 2016. Last year, more than $14.2 million was raised nationwide to benefit local programs and services, as well as the national advocacy and public awareness initiatives of NDSS that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.
Don't delay! Register by October 11th to guarantee your t-shirt size! Shirts will be available on a first come first serve basis for registrations after October 11th.
Please note: Feeding the Gulf Coast will be at our event and we encourage walkers to bring non-perishable food items the day of the walk for donation. Thank you!
