• 15th Annual Buddy Walk is this Saturday

    October 11, 2012 No comments

    This Saturday, October 13 is the 15th Annual Buddy Walk raising money for Down Syndrome Indiana. The Buddy Walk® was established by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. 

    Nationally, Buddy Walk® is the most widely recognized public awareness program for the Down syndrome community. Locally, it is currently the largest fund raising event for Down Syndrome Indiana, with this year’s goal set at $300,000 for corporate and team sponsorships.

    Registration will open at 9am, with the walk beginning promptly at noon.

    The Buddy Walk® is a 2.6 mile no-fee walk along the canal beginning at Celebration Plaza in White River State Park. Proceeds from the walk help fund Down Syndrome Indiana programs and services that help individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
