2022 Down Syndrome Support Team Buddy Walk


Each year, the National Buddy Walk Program touches thousands of lives.  When the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) created it in 1995, there were walks in 17 cities.  This year, over 300 Buddy Walk events will be held with more than 310,000 people expected to participate.  The Buddy Walk is a one-mile walk in which anyone can participate without special training.  It is a wonderful, heart-warming event that celebrates the many abilities and accomplishments of people with Down syndrome.  Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, come and join a Buddy Walk in your local community.

When: Sunday, September 25th
Where: Gallup Park (3000 Fuller Rd. Ann Arbor)
Time: Walk @ 3pm (Day of Registration available at 1:30pm)


Our Buddy Walk is on for 2022!  We will hold our 1-mile walk, and will have children's activities and entertainment.  Snacks and drinks will be provided. We will have tables and chairs but not as many as in past years, so feel free to bring a picnic blanket if you’d like. We will have our traditional Raffle Baskets this year along the Silent Auction. Leonardo will be providing musical entertainment. We look forward to seeing you!
