2021 LLDSS - 21st Annual Buddy Walk

10/24/2021 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Southwind Park, 4965 S. 2nd St., Springfield, IL 62703

The Buddy Walk® was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.  Since its inception, it has become the world’s most widely recognized public awareness program for the Down syndrome community.

Lincoln Land Down Syndrome Society is excited to celebrate our 21st Annual Buddy Walk!  For Covid-19 safety, we have moved the date and location of the walk to accommodate the spacing out of groups to walk in intervals.  We are also offering a virtual option for those interested in celebrating that way.  

This year’s walk celebrates the friendships made between individuals, among families, and in our community since 2000. The Buddy Walk® will be held at Southwind Park on Sunday, October 24th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Groups will have the option to choose from one of four available time slots to come celebrate!
