Buddy Walks have been around for awhile!
They can be hosted by various Down Syndrome organizations. They provide a social opportunity to celebrate Down syndrome and families. The funding can be used for programming, research etc.
BCDSIG does not host a buddy walk, but you'll find our families at local ones!
Find out more or find a local Buddy Walk!

World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) , 21 March, is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.
The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.
