Down Syndrome Family Network 5k Run & Buddy Walk


About the National Buddy Walk® Program    

In 1995 the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) based in the USA; established the first Buddy Walk to promote acceptance, awareness and inclusion for people with Down Syndrome. This year the Buddy Walk celebrates its 24th year with over 250 walks held in the USA and internationally. During the last twenty-two years, the Buddy Walk has not only become the premier advocacy event for Down Syndrome, but also the world’s most widely recognized public awareness program for the Down Syndrome community. It’s a wonderful, heart-warming experience that brings people together for a day outdoors to recognize, embrace and celebrate our differences. Our walk has become the largest inclusive event for persons with disabilities in the Caribbean and is widely publicized by the media.
