                                          cacy. It brings together people with Down syndrome and their invited “buddies”—everyone from
                                          friends and family to teachers, politicians and co-workers — to promote acceptance and inclusion

             e                            for people with Down syndrome and to raise funds for education, research and advocacy programs.


 Is G reciat                              The Buddy Walk is a one-mile walk in which anyone can participate without special training. The
                                          walk has grown from 17 walks in 1995 to more than 260 in recent years. Hundreds of thousands of

                                          people walk from coast to coast and around the world each year. The goal of the Buddy Walk is
                                          three-fold: to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome; to raise the funds
                                          necessary to develop innovative and effective programs; and to enhance the position of the Down
                                          syndrome community, enabling us to positively influence local and national policy and practice.
