The Buddy Walk is a one-mile advocacy walk for individuals with Down syndrome and other differing abilities.

The Buddy Walk® was created by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate
Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of
people with Down syndrome. The Buddy Walk® has grown from 17 walks in 1995 to nearly 300
local programs and services, as well as the national advocacy and public awareness initiatives
of NDSS that benefit all individuals with Down Syndrome.
