DSANI Buddy Walk
Saturday September 10, 2016
Fort Wayne, IN
The DSANI Annual Buddy Walk is the second largest Buddy Walk in Indiana! The Buddy Walk is a trademarked program that was created by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to assist local parent groups in their advocacy efforts. With more than 275 walks taking place in our city and around the country and abroad, we are able to speak with a unified and stronger voice on creating awareness of Down syndrome. Once you cross the “Finish Line” the After-party begins with activities and entertainment. Fun is sure to be had by all!
The Buddy Walk is a walk in which anyone can participate without special training. It is an inspirational and educational event that celebrates the many abilities and accomplishments of people with Down syndrome. Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does, or just want to show your support, plan to join us for the 17th Annual Buddy Walk at Parkview Field!
This year's fundraising goal is $90,000 which will help us enhance the lives of people affected by Down syndrome, advocate on their behalf, provide information and support to families and professionals and promote acceptance and inclusion. We need your help to make this year's Buddy Walk a success!
Please Note: DSANI is continually seeking ways to improve our organization and the services we provide. In an effort to utilize more of the funds raised by the Buddy Walk for programming and services, lunch will not be provided. However, there will be concession stands open at Parkview Field so please plan accordingly.
Registration/Check-In Opens at 9am | Walk begins at 10am
