The Buddy Walk is the primary fundraising event for the Down Syndrome Association of the Lowcountry. Registrations and team fundraising makes up 80% of proceeds. It is also one of the largest walks nationally thanks to the overwhelming community support!
The Walk is more than a walk, it is a day long festival. Dave Landeo and Tripp and Trampus Hoover will collaborate this year and will take stage at noon. Four local cheer squads and Wando HS band will be there to kick off the walk itself. There are also 8 jump castles, face painting, carnival food and lunch all included in registration!
We expect thousands of family, friends, neighbors, school mates, co-workers, and community members to join us to celebrate our loved ones with Down syndrome at the Buddy Walk. For Ds families this is the most magical day of the year.
It is thanks to the community sponsorship of the Buddy Walk that we are able to fund a year’s worth of socials and monthly events that foster and build a sense of community among children and adults with Down syndrome and their family members. But the Down Syndrome Association of the Lowcountry does much more than provide social interaction. DSAL hosts camps for youth, brings speakers to educate our parents, provides hospitals with new parent materials and reaches out to our area schools. Each year DSAL strives to engineer new ways to help our kids and families with Down syndrome, but it’s not possible without the sponsors and families that give so generously.
