The Buddy Walk was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month. Here in Rhode Island, the Buddy Walk is an incredible day that raises awareness and funds for programs that benefit local people with Down syndrome and their families.


Come walk with us and meet some great families from around the Ocean State! 

This is a rain or shine event.
