What Is a Buddy Walk®?

The Buddy Walk® started in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Association (NDSS) to promote the inclusion and acceptance of people with Down Syndrome. This widely recognized public awareness program raises funds for research and support.

If I Can’t Be There for the Walk, How Else Can I Help?

The Arc of Northeastern PA could use your help reaching their $7,500 goal. If you can’t be there for the Buddy Walk®, consider donating!
