$37,489 Raised $75,000 Goal


Gather your favorite World Changers and join your Down Syndrome Community for the 3rd Annual Pierce County Buddy Walk in Tacoma, Washington.  The goal of this event is to raise money to develop a community center to help support our families and children.  Your donation will help provide us with the opportunity to raise money towards beginning an organization focused on offering connections, supports and resources to our individuals with Down Syndrome.  This will allow for all ages to be involved and connect with one another, while receiving supports, services and building friendships.   Our children, of all ages, have been through many health obstacles, in addition to working harder to achieve their milestones.   They are the true World Changers! So let us team together to build the community that they deserve!

The Pierce County Buddy Walk will start at 11 am, where you can connect with your friends and team, and then at 11:15 we will take a trip around the track together before our World Changers take a stroll on the Red Carpet. Food trucks, resource tables, activities and multiple Buddy Basket Giveaways will be there throughout the day!!!!! 

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
