Wiregrass Area Buddy Walk

Landmark Park
Cost? = $5 Participate Fee
More Info = To register for the event you can go to

The 8th Annual Wiregrass Area Buddy Walk will be held Saturday, October 31st @ Landmark Park.

The Buddy Walk helps celebrate October as National Down Syndrome Awareness Month. The Buddy Walk was first established in 1955 by the National Down Syndrome Society and the Wiregrass Area had its first in 2008. It is a fun, wonderful, heart-warming event in which thousands of people from coast to coast and around the world participate each year.

You can make a difference in the lives of thousands of families. Your participation in the Wiregrass Area Buddy Walk helps the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. organization (Families Reaching, Influencing, Educating and Networking for Down Syndrome) provide information and support to families in the Wiregrass Area. You can visit their website at

Organize a team from your workplace, school or community and support people with Down syndrome. Whether you have Down syndrome, know someone who does or just want to show your support, come and join the Wiregrass Area Buddy Walk.

For more information on how you can get involved or form a team, email or call Alicia @ 726.2075.

The Buddy Walk was developed by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to bring together a wide range of concerned individuals to reach out to friends, family and co-workers to promote acceptance and inclusion for people with Down syndrome and to raise money for local and national programs and services. Each Buddy Walk is usually a one-mile walk and is surrounded by a day full of family friendly games, inflatables and fun music.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is the local DS support group that the Wiregrass Area Buddy Walk raises money for. F.R.I.E.N.D.S. provides services to individuals with DS and their families by (1) providing up-to-date materials and handouts to doctors, hospitals, clinics, libraries, schools and new families, (2) offering opportunities for socialization and education, (3) promoting community recognition of the inherent dignity of all people with developmental disabilities. 90% of all monies raised stay in the Wiregrass. The remaining 10% goes to the National Down Syndrome Society to assist with National Advocacy programs and such.

Whether you have Down syndrome, have a friend or family member with Down syndrome or have just heard about our awesome Wiregrass Area Down syndrome BUDDIES….I encourage you to attend our walk. I assure you that you will leave a changed person. You will feel love at the event like no other. You will experience seeing true JOY in the lives of people that have overcome so many obstacles to get where they are today. And you will be blessed by attending.
