$36,279 Raised $50,000 Goal


Come walk with us at the FIRST Pierce County Buddy Walk in Tacoma, Washington to support our Down Syndrome community and their families.  

As our community is getting healthier, and activities begin to open, we would like to increase the amount of safe in-person activities that our families get to participate in, in order to provide resources, support, and relationships that will last a lifetime.  In addition, we would like to assess the need and begin building Pierce County’s first resource center for our Down Syndrome Community. 

Your subscription, in the form of donation, will make this dream possible in Pierce County.  ALL proceeds will be directed towards these activities and in developing a resource center for our community. 

Many of our children, of all ages, have been through significant health obstacles, some have gone through multiple surgeries, and all are working harder to achieve their developmental growth milestones.  Parents and caregivers are also in need of support so they can help their children conquer their goals. 

However, they are not the only Super Heroes. You are too, and they need your help and support. 

With the support from our community, YOU, they will not be alone and can get essential services to their Children. Right here, in Pierce County, we can connect with other families while receiving the support, resources, and essential services our children need.   


Join our Buddy Walk and together we can build the community that they deserve!


About the Pierce County Buddy Walk:

We are all set to support all families and health risks, allowing for zero contact, or social distance spacing. We will start with a tailgating activity, where we can decorate our cars and then will take a trip around the track together and celebrate!

We will have multiple raffles at the event, in addition to prizes for the top fundraising teams!

Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, take the first step. 

Donate or register today.  All are welcome for our day of celebration!
