National Buddy Walk Program

The Buddy Walk® was established by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) in 1995 to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome, and to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. The Buddy Walk has grown from 17 walks in 1995 to more than 250 walks in 2012 worldwide. In 2012 over $11.75 million was raised nationwide to benefit local programs and services, as well as the national advocacy and public awareness initiatives of the NDSS.
