The Buddy Walk was developed by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to bring together friends, family and co-workers to promote awareness and inclusion for people with Down syndrome and to raise money for research and education programs. The program has expanded from 17 walks in 1995 to more than 300 walks around the world today. Nearly 285,000 people participated across the country last year alone.
The Montgomery Area Down Syndrome Outreach Group Buddy Walk will attract at least 700 participants from the area. People with Down syndrome, families and friends walk at Faulkner University’s John Mark Stallings Football Field to promote Down syndrome awareness.
