$52,992 Raised $50,000 Goal

Join the Gulf Coast Down Syndrome Society as we unite for a common cause and raise funds at the 21st Annual GCDSS 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!  

While we had hoped to gather in-person this year, we have made the decision to move to a Buddy Walk® and Drive Thru Parade event to ensure social distancing can be maintained.  The Drive Thru Parade will still be held at the Gulfport Sportplex.  Click the following link for the Drive Thru Parade Information.

To get started, just select the "REGISTER" button to start a team, join a team, or register as an individual. Additional family members can be added by selecting the green "Add Another Registrant" button during Step 3.  After you register, you can start your team or personal fundraising page by selecting the "Fundraising Page Set Up" button at the top of the online receipt.

If you cannot attend this event but would like to make a donation to the Gulf Coast Down Syndrome Society, please select the DONATE button. You can also donate to an individual or team by visiting their fundraising page under the TEAMS/PEOPLE tab.
