Down Syndrome Family Connection is pleased to host the 11th Annual Buddy Walk on Sunday, September 23rd at Monroe County Fairgrounds! Our Buddy Walk, which draws approximately 1000 participants, would not be possible without our volunteers. From set up to clean up and all the fun in between, it is an event you'll never forget, so sign up today to show your support. Thank you so much!
