    This is the first we missed the Buddy Walk. It’s a shame our family weren’t informed with this event .

      Due to the weather last year, we combined the 2018 Buddy Walk with World Down Syndrome Day 2019 on March 30, 2019. Information was posted on Facebook and website. We plan on having another Buddy Walk the third Saturday in September.
