The Buddy Walk was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society as a way to celebrate and promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. Today, the Buddy Walk is supported nationally by NDSS and parent support groups like our Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan.

We Walk for Our Kids
Each year, the outpouring of support from families, friends and community members affirms and validates our children and nourishes and sustains families. When you participate in the Buddy Walk and invite others to join you, you introduce your family, friends, co-workers and others to see the Promise, Possibility and Potential of YOUR BUDDY! (Our Kaitlyn)
We Walk to Bust Myths
The Buddy Walk is the perfect opportunity for our friends and families to see the possibility, promise and potential in persons with Down syndrome! The Walk is a great place to learn about Down syndrome, and break the myths and stereotypes that hinder individuals as they strive to be accepted and be appreciated by the community.
We Walk to Support DSAWM Programs and Services
Join Us as We Walk in the 2010 Buddy Walk to Support the
Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan!
On September 25th we will be participating in our second Buddy Walk. The goal of the Buddy Walk® is to promote understanding and acceptance of people with Down syndrome. It also gives us an opportunity to help raise funds for the Down syndrome Association of West Michigan. This organization has been amazing to us and we would love nothing more then to help raise money to allow them to continue all that they do for our local Down syndrome community. The walk also allows us to come together as family, and friends, and join Kaitlyn's team. It is a fun morning of fellowship and fun.
Please consider walking with us and/or donating. No amount is too small. Thank you so much for all your support. The last year would not have been possible without all of our amazing family and friends!
