Buddy Walk on Washington

Each year, a delegation of advocates from MDSN joins hundreds of other Down syndrome advocates from across the country to participate in the Annual Buddy Walk on Washington.  This is not, in actuality a “walk”, but a day to meet with our elected officials and their staff, to talk about issues that are of vital importance to the Down syndrome community.
