About Buddy Walk

This event raises funds to promote awareness for all individuals with Down Syndrome. In addition, funds raised for our Buddy Walk through Up with Downs will be used to help pay for “Precious Gifts” kits for new parents, advocacy training, books, guest speakers and materials for families, for our annual social gatherings, and also we give a portion to our National Down Syndrome Society & local organizations that also provide their services to any special needs individuals. We are striving to continue to add additional resources for our families this year.

Our annual Buddy Walk will be held on October 7th, 2017 on the LSUS campus. It is a day filled with fun while building awareness and acceptance, beginning with our ceremonial 1mile walk around the campus, including little ones in strollers & wagons and teams of supporters whose lives have been touched by a loved one with Down syndrome. Then, we will spend the day gathering with families, friends, and supporters of our loved ones with Down Syndrome. This will include lunch, music, bounce houses, and face painting.
