The Buddy Walk is a wonderful way to celebrate those we love born with Down syndrome. Anyone’s invited - the more the merrier! This is the Emerald Family Down Syndrome Network’s largest fundraiser. Families circulate pledge forms to their neighbors, co-workers and friends prior to the walk. The Buddy Walk is a great way to educate our community about Down syndrome awareness. Using the pledge forms and talking about the Buddy Walk to people outside our immediate circle gives a more personal testimony that people with Down syndrome deserve to be accepted and appreciated for who they are and what they contribute to our community.
93% of all money we raised at the Buddy Walk stays here locally to support our EFDSN programs and events. The remaining 7% we raise goes back the National Down Syndrome Society in support of Buddy Walk’s everywhere!
