After careful consideration, FCDSA has made the difficult decision to cancel our 15th Annual Buddy Walk on March 21st at Central Park Palm Coast due to the risks associated with the coronavirus. If you know anyone with Down syndrome, you know how much we love to hug and keeping a 6 foot rule would be unacceptable.  Individuals with DS are in the “high risk” category for respiratory infections and we will not put them at increased risk.

Our decision to cancel our largest event of the year was not taken lightly.  Ultimately our priority at the Buddy Walk and all FCDSA events and gatherings is, our members’ and attendees’ health and safety.

Although we are greatly disappointed about this news, we have rescheduled to October 17th so mark your calendars.  Stay tuned to our website, social media channels and you email for current information as we get closer to the new date.  You will not need to re-register in October.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
