2020 Greater Charlotte Buddy Walk

The Greater Charlotte Buddy Walk will be held on Saturday, October 10th from 10am-1pm, at Jerry Richardson Football Stadium at UNC Charlotte. 

Buddy Walk History

The Buddy Walk was developed by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate October, National Down Syndrome Awareness Month and provide an annual public platform for advocacy. It brings together people with Down syndrome and their invited “buddies” — everyone from friends and family to teachers, politicians and co-workers — to promote acceptance and inclusion for people with Down syndrome and to raise funds for education, research and advocacy programs.

The Buddy Walk is a one-mile walk in which anyone can participate without special training. Hundreds of thousands of people walk from coast to coast and around the world each year. The goal of the Buddy Walk is three-fold: to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome; to raise the funds necessary to develop innovative and effective programs; and to enhance the position of the Down syndrome community, enabling us to positively influence local and national policy and practice.

The DSA of Greater Charlotte’s goal is to raise $200,000 from the Buddy Walk this year to support our current programs and create and sustain new programs. As always, the mission of the DSA of Greater Charlotte is to enhance the quality of life for all people with Down syndrome by empowering individuals, families and professionals with information and support through education, social programs and community partnerships.

Thank you for helping to support that mission!
