The Buddy Walk® was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down syndrome and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.
On Sunday, October 7th, Down syndrome Outreach held our 15th Annual Buddy Walk in downtown Bellingham at Depot Market Square. Despite a little bit of rain, there were over 400 people walking, celebrating, honoring, dancing and spreading awareness of Down syndrome! Inside of the building, kids were crafting, making posters, playing with Lego’s and enjoying our sensory areas. With the help of over 75 volunteers, the event ran smoothly. Thanks so much to all of the families, friends, volunteers, and community supporting for this event. This day was made possible by all of the amazing sponsors, community partners, and donors!
Donate & Help Raise Money
The money raised will support local programs for individuals with Down syndrome. With everyone’s active participation and generous support, the possibilities for great services and events become endless!
Down syndrome Outreach is a volunteer committee of family members and compassionate friends. Volunteers are always needed on the day of the event to help set up, give directions, hand out information, and more.
